  • Indonesia Place Name Conventions

    Originally posted by Theresa42
    Clarifying Indonesian placenames -- the administrative hierarchy seems to be (with common abbreviations in parentheses):

    Regency / Kabupaten (Kab.)
    Sub-districts / Kecamatan (Kec.)
    Villages / Desa
    Hamlets / Kampung (Kp.)

    A common way that a location might be written with abbreviations in an Indonesian newspaper (this is how Euis Lina's location was written):
    Kp./Desa Cigadog, Kec. Cikelet, Kab. Garut

    In other words:
    Kampung/Desa Cigadog, Kecamatan Cikelet, Kabupaten Garut

    Hamlet/Village Cigadog (because both the hamlet & village are named Cigadog), Sub-district Cikelet, Garut Regency


    Garut Regency:

    45 Kecamatan / Sub-disctricts [only 31 on the map I've been referring to here -- I can't explain the discrepancy]:

    Balubur Limbangan, Banjarwangi, Banyuresmi, Bayongbong, Blubur Limbangan, Buangbulang, Bungbulang, Caringin, Cibalong, Cibatu, Cibiuk, Cigedug, Cigedung, Cihurip, Cikajang, Cikelet, Cilawu, Cisewu, Cisompet, Cisompret, Cisurupan, Garut, Kadungora, Karangpawitan, Karangtengah, Kersamanah, Leles, Leuwigoong, Malangbong, Mekarmukti, Pakenjeng, Pameungpeuk, Pamulihan, Pasirwangi, Peundeuy, Samarang, Selaawi, Semarang, Singajaya, Sukaresmi, Sukawening, Talegong, Tarogong Kaler, Tarogong Kidul, Wanaraja

    So, for Cikelet, the administrative hierarchy is:

    Regency / Kapupaten (Kab.): Garut
    Sub-district / Kecamatan (Kec.): Cikelet
    Village / Desa (7 altogether in Cikelet sub-district): Cikelet, Linggamanik, Kertamukti, Cigadog, Pamalayan, Karangsari and Cijambe
    Hamlets / Kampung (Kp.): Numerous. Some of the ones we've heard of in Cikelet village are - Cibeunteur, Jojok/Jojoh, Pasir Maja, Rancamareme, Rancasalak, Sawah Bera and Tipar [hat-tip, LaidbackAl!].

    So far, all of the cases have been from various hamlets in Cikelet village, Cikelet sub-district. There are reports that Euis Lina was actually from Cigadog hamlet, Cigadog village, Cikelet sub-district.

    And, the latest patient, Gilang, is being treated in a different sub-district altogether, Pameungpeuk, although that might be where the nearest clinic/hospital is since Umar is reported to go there for follow-up treatments/check-ups. Gilang may prove to be from Cikelet.

    Thanks to Theresa42.

    Re: Indonesia Place Name Conventions

    Additional information to help understand H5N1 cases in urban areas.

    Hierarchical Administrative Divisions in Indonesia
    A. Province / Provinsi
    B. Regency / Kabupaten (Kab.) and City /Kota and Municipality / Kotamadya
    C. Sub-district / Kecamatan (Kec.)
    D. Village / Desa and District / Kelurahan
    E. Hamlet / Kampung (Kp.)

    B. Kota and Kotamadya have same standing as a regency in a province.
    D. Desa seems to reference a rural area and Kelurahan references a more populated or urban locale. The two terms appear to have slightly different standing but district (kelurahan) is subordinate to the sub-district (kecamatan), which is not how english speakers might interpret a translation.

    The District (kelurahan) was the distribution of the administrative territory in Indonesia under the subdistrict (kecamatan).
    In the context of autonomy of the area in Indonesia, the District (kelurahan) was the work territory of the Village Head as regional Equipment of the Regency (kabupaten) or the city (kota).
    The district was led by a Village Head.
    The district (kelurahan) was the government's smallest unit be on a level with the village (desa).
    Was different to the village (desa), the district (kelurahan) had the right to arrange his territory was more limited.
    In his development, a village (desa) could be increased by his status to the district (kelurahan).

    Kelurahan adalah pembagian wilayah administratif di Indonesia di bawah kecamatan.
    Dalam konteks otonomi daerah di Indonesia, Kelurahan merupakan wilayah kerja Lurah sebagai Perangkat Daerah Kabupaten atau kota. Kelurahan dipimpin oleh seorang Lurah.
    Kelurahan merupakan unit pemerintahan terkecil setingkat dengan desa. Berbeda dengan desa, kelurahan memiliki hak mengatur wilayahnya lebih terbatas. Dalam perkembangannya, sebuah desa dapat ditingkatkan statusnya menjadi kelurahan

      Thanks so much, Al! I started noticing these other terms and wondered what the heck they might mean. Thanks for investigating!

          Provinces of Indonesia

          Buy data Donate


          FIPS Publication Change Notice No. 10, affecting FIPS PUB 10-4, was issued on 2006-03-23. It lists new codes resulting from the creation of three provinces (Irian Jaya Barat, Kepulauan Riau, and Sulawesi Barat).
          I previously stated that Batam was the capital of Kepulauan Riau province when it was created, and the intention was to move the capital to Tanjung Pinang when the infrastructure was ready. I now believe that the de jure capital was Tanjung Pinang from the start, but the government met in Batam for a while.

          Meanwhile, according to this report, development of the new capital of Maluku Utara province at Sofifi was due to start in 2003-07.
          ISO 3166-2 Newsletter number I-7 was published on 2005-09-13. It assigns an ISO code to the new province of Sulawesi Barat.
          Paraskevas Renesis reported, and I have found confirmation, that on 2004-09-22 the DPR (Parliament) approved the creation of a new province, Sulawesi Barat (West Sulawesi). It consists of the kabupaten of Majene, Mamasa, Mamuju, Mamuju Utara, and Polewali Mandar, formerly part of Sulawesi Selatan province. Its provincial government was inaugurated on 2004-10-16. Note: sources agree that one of the kabupaten in the new province is Polewali Mandar, but my list of kabupaten before the split didn't include any named Polewali Mandar. There was one named Polewali Mamasa, and Mamasa kabupaten was divided from it in 2002. If Polewali Mamasa is the correct name of that kabupaten, then the sum of the populations (2003 estimate) and areas of the kabupaten in Sulawesi Barat are 904,288 and 15,604 km.?, respectively. However, other sources give the area of the new province as 16,796 km.?. It appears that the capital of Sulawesi Barat is Mamuju.

          According to the Jakarta Post of 2004-07-22, there is a proposal to create a new province, North Kalimantan (Kalimantan Utara). It would be split from East Kalimantan (Kalimantan Timur) by taking the kabupaten of Bulungan, Malinau, and Nunukan, and the kotamadya of Tarakan.
          ISO 3166-2 Newsletter Number I-6 was published on 2004-03-08. It shows the new status of Aceh as an autonomous province, with no name change. It also shows the new province of Kepulauan Riau, with <CODE>ID-KR</CODE> as its ISO code.

          The Indonesian statistics department, Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS), has updated its page for results of the 2001 census. Previously, my table below showed preliminary results of that census, and the newly-created provinces didn't have any population data. Now we have apparently final results of the census, including corrections for undercount. The results page also shows province areas. In many cases they differ significantly from the figures I had shown before (on the order of 10%). Kepulauan Riau was still included in Riau at the time these data were calculated.

          Proposals for new provinces include dividing Sumatera Utara into two provinces named Tapanuli and Sumatera Timur; splitting a new Cirebon province from Jawa Barat; splitting Madura from Jawa Timur; splitting Ketapang from Kalimantan Barat; splitting Kalimantan Utara from Kalimantan Timur; splitting Southeast Maluku from Maluku; splitting Bima from Nusa Tenggara Barat; splitting Flores from Nusa Tenggara Timur; splitting Luwu Raya from Sulawesi Selatan; splitting Sulawesi Barat from Sulawesi Selatan; splitting Sulawesi Timur from Sulawesi Tengah; splitting Tomini Raya from Sulawesi Utara; and creating Sumatera Barat province. (I don't understand the last, because there is already a province by that name.) Sulawesi Barat may be closest to accomplishment, because on 2002-11-12, the Indonesian parliament agreed to consider a draft law for its establishment.

          In 1976, Indonesia unilaterally annexed East Timor, which had been an overseas province of Portugal since 1951. It became the Indonesian province of Timor Timur. Portugal, among others, never recognized Indonesia's sovereignty. On 1999-08-30, a referendum was held in the province. There was a 78.5% majority for independence. The UNTAET (United Nations Transitional Administration for East Timor) relinquished its authority to the new Timorese government on 2002-05-20.
          Change Notice 4 to FIPS PUB 10-4 is dated 2000-02-25. Timor Timur, as a province of Indonesia with FIPS code <CODE>ID27</CODE>, has been deleted from the standard. In its place, a country code of <CODE>TT</CODE> has been assigned to East Timor.

          Aceh province gained autonomy (not independence) on 2002-01-01. The formal name of the province changed from Daerah Istimewa Aceh to Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam in 2002 also, suggesting that the name change reflects its new status. Nanggroe is Acehnese for "state". Darussalam comes from Arabic dar as-salam: house of peace.

          On 1999-09-16, a bill was passed to divide the province of Maluku into two provinces, Maluku and Maluku Utara (North Moluccas). Maluku Utara includes the islands of Halmahera, Morotai, Obi, Bacan, Makian, Tidore, and Ternate. Change Notice 6 to FIPS PUB 10-4 is dated 2001-01-28. It shows Maluku and Maluku Utara separately.

          Also on 1999-09-16, the Indonesian parliament voted to split Irian Jaya into three provinces: Papua (Irian Jaya Timur), Irian Jaya Barat, and Irian Jaya Tengah. However, the split was not ratified by the local authorities, so it never took place. A Presidential Instruction in 2003 directed the Home Minister to take steps to implement the two new provincial governments, but many Papuans argue that the special autonomy bill of 2001 supersedes and voids the bill of 1999.

          Several more provinces have recently been formed. According to Internet sources, Banten province (8,232 km.?, capital Serang) was split from Jawa Barat on 2000-10-06, Bangka-Belitung province was split from Sumatera Selatan on 2000-11-21, and on 2000-12-05, Gorontalo province (12,864 km.?, capital Gorontalo) was split from Sulawesi Utara. On 2002-09-24, Kepulauan Riau province (temporary capital Batam, to be supplanted by Tanjung Pinang) was split from Riau, consisting of its islands not adjacent to Sumatera.

          Harvard's Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research reports that on 2001-10-22, the Indonesian parliament passed a bill for special autonomy for Irian Jaya. On its effective date, 2001-12-22, the name of Irian Jaya changed to Papua.

          ISO 3166-2 Newsletter Number I-2 is dated 2002-05-21. It shows the changes to the provinces of Indonesia that occurred in 1999-2000. It assigns codes to the new provinces, which are shown in the table below. It also gives "Papua Barat" as an alternate name for the region (or geographical unit) named Irian Jaya; however, the province formerly known as Irian Jaya is now named Papua, with no alternate name.
          ISO 3166-2 Newsletter number I-4 is dated 2002-12-10. It shows the name of Irian Jaya, as a geographical unit, changing to Papua.
          Change Notice 7 to FIPS PUB 10-4 is dated 2002-01-10. It lists new codes resulting from the splitting of three provinces. The new codes are shown in the table below.

          Change Notice 8 to FIPS PUB 10-4 is dated 2002-06-28. It shows the name of Irian Jaya province changing to Papua.
          The name of the capital of Sulawesi Selatan has reverted from Ujung Pandang back to Makassar. The city had formerly used that name until 1971.

          Tanjungkarang, the former capital of Lampung province, was amalgamated with the neighboring city of Telukbetung in the 1980s. The joined city was briefly called Tanjungkarang-Telukbetung, but soon was renamed Bandar Lampung. Since then, Panjang has also been absorbed into the city.

          At the beginning of the 20th century, Indonesia was a newly coined name. It referred in a general way to the southern part of the Malay Archipelago. The modern country of Indonesia was then several Dutch colonies, known collectively as the Netherlands Indies or the East Indies. During World War II, the area was almost completely occupied by Japanese forces. At the end of the war, the country declared its independence under the name of Indonesia. On 1949-12-27, the separation became official. Dutch New Guinea, however, remained a colony of the Netherlands until 1963-05-01. Indonesia unilaterally annexed Portuguese Timor in 1976. After some struggle, it regained its independence in 2002 and became Timor-Leste.

          • Province: except for Aceh autonomous province, Yogyakarta special region, and Jakarta Raya special district.
          • HASC: Hierarchical administrative subdivision codes. These are based on the province codes from ISO standard
            3166-2, but have been altered for the four new provinces and their parents.
          • ISO: Codes from ISO 3166-2. For full identification in a global context, prefix "<CODE>ID-</CODE>" to the code (ex: <CODE>ID-RI</CODE>
            represents Riau).
          • FIPS: Codes from FIPS PUB 10-4.
          • Code: These codes seem to be used regularly in Indonesia, but I haven't found a name for them.
          • Tz: Time zone for the province, in hours later (+) than UTC. No daylight saving time observed.
          • Population: 2000-06-30 census.
          • Area: The area and population of Irian Jaya Barat are included in Papua; of Kepulauan Riau in Riau; and of
            Sulawesi Barat in Sulawesi Selatan.
          • Capital: A tourist site says, "The modern provincial capital of Jambi consists of the old prewar centre, seat of
            the former sultanate Jambi, and the new governmental centre in Telanaipura just west of it." Maps usually show
            one city, labeled either "Jambi" or "Jambi (Telanaipura)". The capital of Kepulauan Riau is expected to move
            to Tanjung Pinang. A new capital is being built for Maluku Utara at Sofifi, in central Halmahera.
          • Reg: Geographical unit containing the province, according to ISO 3166-2. For key to codes, see table below.
          • Postcode: Indonesian postal codes are five digits. They are known as SKPI, for Sistem Kode Pos Indonesia;
            or Kodepos for short. The first two digits determine the province, as shown.

          Further subdivisions:

          See the Regencies of Indonesia page.
          The provinces are subdivided into kabupaten (districts) and kotamadya (municipalities). The districts are further subdivided into kecamtan (sub-districts). ISO 3166-2 lists seven "geographical units". Basically, these are the major islands or island groups of Indonesia. They have no official standing, but are obvious groupings on a map.

          Change history:
          1. 1900: Indonesia consisted of the Dutch colonies of Borneo, Celebes, Java, Moluccas, New Guinea, and Sumatra, and the Portuguese colony of Timor (actually occupying about half of the island of Timor, and some smaller nearby islands). Some of the colonies had divisions or residencies. Borneo's West Division was the same as Kalimantan Barat; the other three provinces on the island made up the South and East Division. Celebes was divided into Celebes, Menado, and Ternate divisions in this period. At the time of independence, Sumatra was divided into the residencies of Atjeh, Benkoelen, Djambi, Lampongs, Oostkust, Palembang, Tapanoeli, and Westkust.
          2. 1950-08-15: New provisional constitution changed the name of the country from United States of Indonesia to Republic of Indonesia, and divided it into ten provinces, whose English names were Borneo, Celebes, Central Java, Central Sumatra, East Java, Lesser Sunda Isles, Moluccas, North Sumatra, South Sumatra, and West Java. Capital renamed from Batavia to Jakarta.
          3. 1950: Yogyakarta special region split from Jawa Tengah (Central Java) province.
          4. 1956: Kalimantan province split into Kalimantan Barat, Kalimantan Selatan, and Kalimantan Timur provinces.
          5. 1957: Central Sumatra province split into Jambi, Riau, and Sumatera Barat provinces. Jakarta special district split from Jawa Barat province.

The change was supposed to be completed by 1973-01-01. The purpose was to align Indonesian spelling with Malaysian. Other displaced spellings were Atjeh (changed to Aceh), Djambi (Jambi), and Djawa (Jawa) in province names, Djajapura (Jayapura), Surabaja (Surabaya), Bandjarmasin (Banjarmasin), Palangkaraja (Palangkaraya), Tandjungkarang (Tanjungkarang), and Udjung (Ujung) in capital names.
          17. 1973: Name of Irian Barat province changed to Irian Jaya.
          18. ~1974: Sulawesi Selatan province (capital Ujung Pandang) split into Sulawesi Selatan and Sulawesi Tenggara; Sulawesi Utara province (capital Manado) split into Sulawesi Tengah and Sulawesi Utara; Bengkulu and Lampung provinces split from Sumatera Selatan; territory transferred from Jambi to Sumatera Barat, depriving Jambi of access to the west coast.

          Other names of subdivisions:

          In most Western European languages, the names for the islands of Sumatera, Kalimantan, Jawa, and Sulawesi, respectively, are Sumatra, Borneo (French: Born?o), Java (Turkish: Cava), and Celebes (French: C?l?bes, Portuguese: C?lebes, Turkish: Selebes). Nusa Tenggara is sometimes translated as Lesser Sunda Islands (French: ?les de la Sonde). If province names are translated, it's usually only by translating the name of one of those islands and a compass point. Barat is West, Selatan is South, Tengah is Central, Tenggara is Southeast, Timur is East, and Utara is North. For example, German for Sumatera Barat is Westsumatra; Italian for Jawa Tengah is Java centrale; Portuguese for Sulawesi Utara is C?lebes Setentrionais or C?lebes do Norte. See the table of compass points in the introduction to the book "Administrative Subdivisions of Countries".
          The longer province names are often contracted or abbreviated in Bahasa Indonesia texts, and the abbreviations are consistent enough to list here.
