Improving the Rice Production Calculation Method


As rice is one of Indonesia’s staple foods, the government needs accurate statistical data to help its policymaking. Line ministries and agencies, particularly BPS (Badan Pusat Statistik: Statistics Indonesia), therefore, need to regularly improve the quality of the data collected. Refining the accuracy of food statistics, particularly rice, is one of the challenges faced by BPS and other relevant line ministries and is essential for maintaining national food resilience for both production and consumption.
