Life in Indonesia

The Republic of Indonesia is a sovereign state archipelago in Southeast Asia. Indonesia is made up of more than 17,000 islands, with the biggest three being Java, Sumatra and Borneo. In 2010, Indonesia reported a total population of around 238 million people, and it is estimated that this figure will increase to around 255 million inhabitants by 2015. The biggest cities in Indonesia are its capital Jakarta, Surabaya, and Bandung. Jakarta alone is home to more than 9.6 million inhabitants.

Currently, there are more than 7 billion people in the world and Asia is the continent with the largest population. More than 4 billion people lived in Asia in mid-2014. Indonesia is the second most populous country in Asia, behind China (262879) and the fourth most populous nation in the world.

As a result of an improving economy and better health and living conditions, life expectancy in Indonesia is steadily increasing - between 2002 and 2012, it increased by almost 3 years (319158). Due of a decreasing fertility rate, Indonesian parents are able to more easily provide for their families and the population is still increasing and living longer. The average age of the population in Indonesia is estimated to be around 28.4 years in 2015.
