    11 Rural-Urban Migration in Indonesia: Survey Design and Implementation Budy P. Resosudarmo, Chikako Yamauchi and Tadjuddin Noer Effendi 1 INTRODUCTION This chapter summarizes the study design of the Rural-Urban Migration in Indonesia (RUMiI) project, part of the Rural-Urban Migration in China and Indonesia (RUMiCI) project. We first discuss the overall distribution of migrants in Indonesia and the selection of survey cities. Next, we describe the process of identifying the migration status of each household in the sampling frame, using a pre-survey listing. This is followed by a discussion of the sampling method, focusing on the oversampling of migrant households. The time line of the survey is then discussed and the questionnaire is summarized. Finally, we provide some concluding remarks. The study design is based on the research objectives ofthe RUMiCI project. The first of these objectives is to investigate the labour market activities and welfare of individuals who have moved from rural to urban areas. Thus, one population of interest is households whose heads have moved from a rural to an urban area. We focus on this group of households because they are the most likely to experience profound changes in relation to jobs, incomes and educational attainment; these changes in tum can be expected to provide the impetus for dynamic socio-economic and demographic change in the regions they move to and those they leave behind. The focus on rural-to-urban migrant households facilitates the second main objective of the RUMiCI study, a comparison of migrant households in China and Indonesia....
