Indonesia In Numbers - Stats That Will Blow Your Mind

The Indonesian population is incredibly interesting. We are a country of many ethnicities and cultures thrown together, resulting in this smorgasbord we call home. What's more is we are a young country, thrown into modernism without any warning or guidance. We reap the benefits but also suffer the consequences. We are an eclectic mix of people fighting to move forward, whilst still preserving the past, so we get lost along the way. 

Here are some statistics to show you where we, as the Indonesian population, are today:
