This study is an attempt to provide an understanding on why an Indonesian child is doing one activity and not another one. Households are assumed to maximize their utility by making decisions about time allocation for their children among four different activities: school only, work and school, work only, and neither work nor school. Using data from The National Socioeconomic Survey (SUSENAS) in Indonesia, the impact of child, household and community characteristics were examined along with basic services and infrastructures on children outcomes. The results show that having basic services significantly affects the probability of combining work and school, work only and neither work nor schooling. However, no significant impact is observed on the probability of children attending school in the year of the survey.
