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. In 2003, SUSENAS added a panel segment to the survey.

In 2012, a core survey and a module survey were carried out during the year. The module survey included a special questionnaire on consumption. The special questionnaire asked households quantities and prices of food consumed, as well as detailed household expenditures. The sample size for 2012 was 300,000 households.
