Since its inception in 1963, the Indonesian National Socioeconomic Survey (SUSENAS) has been a major source of data on social welfare of the Indonesian population. Since 1992, the survey has been divided into a core that covers basic socioeconomic characteristics of households and household members, and modules that cover special topics such as consumption, household income, household welfare, tourism, crime, nutrition, housing, etc. Starting in 2003, SUSENAS added a panel segment to the survey.

The 1996 survey was conducted nationwide, covering more than 206,000 households. The module section was on household consumption, expenditure, and income. Also, during 1995-2001, the Household Iodized Salt Survey was conducted as part of SUSENAS.
