Abstract

Poverty is a problem experienced in almost every country, including Indonesia. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) document states that by 2030 governments around the world agree to eliminate extreme poverty. The Government of Indonesia has issued Instruksi Presiden (Inpres) Number 4 of 2022 concerning the Acceleration of the Elimination of Extreme Poverty in the context of eliminating extreme poverty throughout Indonesia by 2024. This research was conducted in special region of Yogyakarta in Indonesia using data from the 2022 National Economic Survey (Susenas) using logistic regression. Independent variables are KRT gender, average years of schooling, unemployment rate, PKH subsidy recipients, BPJS PBI participation, disability, uninhabitable houses, chronic diseases, under-five ownership and access to microfinance.The results showed that the gender of the head of household, average length of schooling, unemployment rate, PKH subsidy recipients, BPJS PBI participation, disability, uninhabitable houses, chronic diseases, under-five ownership and access to microfinance significantly affected poor households. But for extreme poor households, only the chronic disease variable did not have a significant effect. Extreme poor households in urban and rural areas also have different characteristics.
