ABSTRACT

This study examines whether the implementation of fiscal decentralization in District of Karawang can enhance the local government revenue over the period 2009 – 2018. We use dependency ratio, effectiveness ratio, and the degree of decentralization as metrics of fiscal decentralization. Our study found that Karawang had a better level of development of financial independence over time. However, local government of Karawang did not consider the potential revenues of regions. Thus, they were not able to set higher targets on regional revenues. In addition, the regency of Karawang was classified as not being able to carry out fiscal decentralization properly.
