The data was collected by the Jakarta Population and Civil Registry Agency.
“The data recorded as of June 25 shows there are 31,061 non-permanent residents. Non-permanent ,meaning that they hold ID cards registered in other regions,” said the agency’s acting head, Dhany Sukma, on Friday as quoted by kompas.com.
Dhany added that the agency was determining the various reasons for the moves.
Data collection from population management services is still ongoing, he said.
