Multidimensional poverty measurement arises from dissatisfaction with measuring poverty using only a monetary perspective, where the measurement of monetary poverty is not enough to adequately reflect the situation that actually occurs in poor households. Using Susenas March 2018 and Podes 2018, this study aims to look at the effect of household socioeconomic characteristics on multidimensional poverty status in urban and rural areas. From the analysis using logistic regression, households with female household heads are more likely to experience multidimensional poverty in rural areas and vice versa in urban households with female household heads more likely to not experience poverty. Road infrastructure in villages is still a powerful factor in multidimensional poverty in rural areas, but this does not apply in urban areas. Working as a formal worker in urban areas will reduce the chance of experiencing multidimensional poverty, but in rural areas this does not apply. Other variables that have a strong influence on multidimensional poverty in urban and rural areas are household head job status, household head age, dependency ratio, families with disabilities, household head education and access credit. From this result, the government can focus on poverty alleviation programs according to significant variables in each region, such as asphalt development in rural areas, improvement of women's skills in rural areas, expansion of formal employment in urban areas, special assistance for families with disabilities and education in all areas both urban and rural.
