Abstract

The purpose of the study is to determine the characteristics of poor family groups, calculate welfare, education and main occupation and determine their relationship with the income level of poor family groups in coastal communities of Makassar city. It is well known that current poverty reduction programs do not fully address the root causes of poverty. In hypothetical research, three key variables account for poverty: human poverty, social and natural poverty, and additional poverty. The research methodology was conducted using a survey method that focused on poor communities living in the coastal areas of Makassar city, with a unit of analysis for poor households. The number of samples tested was 273 people. To identify the characteristics of poor family groups, a descriptive study was conducted and the relationship between social characteristics and income level was used using the chi-square test. Research results using chi-square methods confirmed that education, education and economics have a significant relationship with family income. Therefore, in poor coastal communities, high-quality production, education and entrepreneurship are important elements to achieve higher family income and better social distance. The results of this study provide concrete suggestions for policymakers and experts seeking to reduce poverty in coastal communities. Family elements such as children, education and work can lead to some actions including providing free education and encouraging volunteerism in traditional activities.It also provides important data on the characteristics of low levels of family reunification in coastal communities of Makassar city and their relationship to the level of implementation.
