In 2013, the National Development Planning Board estimates that reduction in fuel subsidies will lead to a significant increase in inflation of 9 percent of poverty trap. Without any further policy adjustment, the poverty rate of 11,6 percent would rise to 12,2 percent, which means, there are 30 million people in poverty. Several steps were taken to maintain the welfare of the community, particularly those who have low income. There are two major programs that were introduced by the National Team for Acceleration of Povert Reduction (TNP2K), namely the Program for the Acceleration and Expansion of Social Protection (P4S), and the Special Compensation Program. The program targets poor households (RTM), and vulnerable. In order to access the social protection program the beneficiaries (based on the Integrated Data Base) receive the Integrated Social Security Card or KPS. Indonesian Household Welfare Survey is a part of monitoring and evaluation activities that is conducted by the Center, to understand the implementation of social security and protection programs. The observation was carried out in 12 cities in Indonesia, such as Medan, Bandung, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Banjarmasin, Makassar, and five cities in Jakarta.
