The purpose of this study is to determine the characteristics and distribution of Unmet Need in South Sumatra on a geospatial basis. The method in this study uses a quantitative descriptive approach by utilizing secondary data from the 2017 IDHS as well as data on Indonesian families for 2021 conducted by the BKKBN.
