Abstract

This study aimed at knowing the relationship or association between age, sex, education level, marital status, main job status, job sector, workplace distance, classification of worker’s residence area, and industrial sector rate; and the decision of nonpermanent mobility of workers as a complement to research that explores permanent mobility/migration. Additionally, the study is expected to analyze the patterns, characteristics and opportunities for non-permanent mobility of workers in the metropolitan areas of Indonesia. This study used data from the National Labor Force Survey, 2017. Summaries of descriptive analyses showed that those who choose to live and work within the same regency/municipality dominate the population of workers in Indonesian metropolitan areas. The patterns and characteristics of workers: Stayers and movers of several metropolitan areas in Indonesia do not show any differences although the factors that affect mover tendency are different for each region. Hypothesis tests were conducted by applying a multinomial logit regression model. This study also concluded that all independent variables used in the model (age, sex, education level, marital status, main job status, job sector, workplace distance, classification of worker’s residence area, and industrial sector rate share to GDRP) are statistically significant in influencing the dependent variable (nonpermanent employee mobility statue) at a 95 percent confidence level.
