Beritabali.com reports that Bali is experiencing a population explosion that is among the highest in Indonesia. Data from the Population and National Family Planning Agency (BKKPN) measures the annual rate of Bali's growth in population between 2000 and 2010 at 2.51% - a figure well above the national average rate of 1.49%.
The Deputy of Training and Development for BKKBN, Kasmiyati, said at a planning meeting in Bali that if seen from the average rate of births in Bali at a relatively modest 2.14%, the additional impetus in population growth on the Island is linked to migration from other parts of the Country.
Kasmiyati said that family planning programs in Bali are very successful, proven by the fact that birth rates are well below the national average. Moreover, the rate of contraceptive use in Bali is also above the national average of 61.4%.
