Abstract

I plan to present my senior Economics thesis on the effects of Maternal Healthcare on the Infant Mortality rate in Indonesia for the years 2000-2005. I have collected data via the Indonesian Family Life Survey, with detailed life, socioeconomic and political factors that influence maternal health choices. As the 4th largest country in the world and under increasing pressure from the Indonesian government to decrease the infant mortality rate, I have found that the maternal healthcare decisions to be a new and invigorating topic to explore. I hope my research will further advance the possibilities of new studies that further improve the development of healthcare access in Indonesian, specifically in the rural locations.
