Frequently Asked Questions
The home of the Indonesia Alliance for Policy Research's open data. Here you will find data, tools, and resources to conduct research, develop web and mobile applications, design data visualizations, and more.
Ark is committed to providing the highest-quality data in socio-economics, politics, humanitarian, historical and broader scope of Indonesia/n development in general that is currently available. All of the data provided on this catalog have been assessed with respect to several indicators of quality, including timeliness, accuracy, completeness, geographic coverage, innovation, and objectivity.
In some cases, the best available data still have known shortcomings with respect to one or more of these indicators. In those cases, we provide a 'caution' explaining known issues or inaccuracies.
Ark has an open data policy and commits to make our data, and that of our partners, open, discoverable, downloadable, and usable. We believe that open data enables the innovation, information sharing, analysis, and transparency required to support policies that better manage and sustain the country's development.
