This Indonesian sociographic collection is made up of 59 Indonesian social case studies produced by Indonesian anthropology and anthropology final year students in 1959-60. There are 37 village studies spread throughout Java as well as a number of ethnic studies carried out in Indonesia’s outer islands. There are also a number of sociological studies of diverse social urban groupings.

These materials are a source of historic rural and urban Indonesian social data as well as forming the basis for future longitudinal studies which can use the original data in order to examine Indonesian social, economic and political change over the past 50 years.

A description, in both Indonesian and English, of the history of the studies, is given in an article by Ron Witton in the collection: "Indonesian Social Case Studies And Sociographic Data: A Longitudinal Treasure Trove",
