This thesis investigates various aspects of family wellbeing using data from the only large-scale ongoing longitudinal survey in Indonesia, the Indonesia Family Life Survey (IFLS). Across three essays, I explore households’ wellbeing, examining consumption, health and education in Indonesia. Analysing the impact of migration on households’ outcomes, the first two essays investigate the effect of migration on consumption and health; the third essay focuses on the effect of parental health shocks on children’s education.
