In 2022 we just launched a report of a survey that we conducted at the end of 2021. The full report can be accessed from this page. This survey tried to identify the most significant problems experienced to build reading habit and what kind of activities are popular and effective to support reading habit. It also came with some insights and recommendations for individuals, parents and the community including book clubs. The survey was in Bahasa Indonesia and got 770 responses.
The survey was one of our attempts to scale our impact on improvement of reading habits in Indonesia.
