Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An increasing number of urban dwellers tend to encrich land for settlements of restricted urban area to form slums. Such Slums are a serious problem because their existence impact on and trigger social issues. These occur in the case of East Jakarta 2008-2011 period which are 75 slum RWs and decrease by 2014 to 40 RWs. This research aims to determine any relation between population density and slum settlement and relationship between slum area and crime rate in East Jakarta. The method employs quantitative descriptive approach with spatial analyses. The result shows that there is an increase on population but not followed by slum emergence and there is an indirect relationship between crime and slum area which is marked with high crime rate in some RWs which are scattered in areas with large slum distribution.
