Mapping the Proportion of Papuans and Non-Papuans in Tanah Papua1 min read
Tanah Papua, or the Land of Papua, is located on the world’s largest tropical island and endowed with rich cultural and biological diversity. It consists of the two provinces of Papua and West Papua and is the region with the lowest human development index in Indonesia. In 2019, the Indonesian Institute of Sciences conducted social demographic mapping in Tanah Papua to investigate the provision of health and education services and support the Indonesian government in making inclusive policies for the Papuans.
The map from Dwiyanti Kusumaningrum, researcher in Research Center of Population BRIN, shows the proportion of Papuans and non-Papuans in West Papua Province based on the Indonesian Population Census 2010. The large influx of migrants in urban areas has greatly affected the proportion of native Papuans in their homeland. The number of native Papuans (Orang Papua/OAP) in West Papua Province is 381,933, or 51.45 percent of the total.
