Big Data plays a significant role in accelerating financial inclusion. Recently, Pulse Lab Jakarta conducted a data dive that focused on examining various new and emerging data sets that can drive financial inclusion in Indonesia. We looked on measuring financial awareness through social media, measuring financial access through formal financial and non-financial institutions, modelling gender-based differences in financial inclusion and assessing the digital opportunity impact on financial inclusion.
