Abstract

According to the poverty pattern seen in Sragen Regency, Central Java, poor infrastructure development caused the impoverished population living in a remote place to relocate to regions with more hospitable geographic circumstances and easier access. This study surprisingly revealed a negative relationship between poverty and the dependence ratio in Sragen Regency. This particular situation resulted from the fact that youngsters in this community began working earlier than their peers, providing extra revenue for their families. Even if the rate of poverty has decreased, there is still a continuing cycle of poverty because of the poor quality of education that prevents people from being as productive as they may be. According to this study, in order to solve this problem and prevent low-income families from moving to urban areas, infrastructure development in low-income rural areas should put an emphasis on maximizing the potential to increase production value while also giving the community access to new revenue streams. As a result, their kids will benefit from better educational chances.
