Several studies have shed light on government financial redistribution programs’ ability to reduce inequality, yet few studies have addressed the role of society in influencing it. This study aims to determine the influence of religiosity and altruism as characteristics of a society affecting multidimensional inequality in Indonesia. The 5th wave of the Indonesian Family Life Survey (IFLS-5), which included 8207 households from 141 districts, was analyzed to test the hypothesis. Although religiosity showed a positive impact, variables of altruism had different impacts on multidimensional inequality. The results indicate that it is important for the government to design community-development-related policies and interventions.
