Indonesia's position is in 6th place among ASEAN Countries, above Cambodia, Myanmar, Timor Leste, and Laos. This means that children born in Singpura have the opportunity to utilize their abilities to generate an income of 0.90, while every child born in Indonesia only has 55% of the resources to manage available opportunities. The remaining 0.45% is used as idle capacity.
