The Contribution of the Agricultural Sector to Community Welfare in the Cirebon District


Gedong Gincu mango (GGM) is a leading commodity in the Cirebon district. It’s cultivated intensively in five sub-districts and is a source of income for the community. The study aimed to analyze the contribution of the agriculture sector to community welfare, especially in the Cirebon district. This research was conducted from August to October 2020 in the five sub-districts that produce GGM. Descriptive, quantitative field surveys were provided to 300 participants and multiple linear regression models were used to analyze the data. The results showed that the agricultural sector has contributed to the GRDP, but the extent to which it does so varied between the five sub-districts. The agricultural sector in the Sedong and Greged sub district had the highest contribution to the GRDP, but they both have the lowest score on the Human Development Index (HDI). This suggested that the existence of a leading GRDP does not guarantee high community welfare in GGM producing areas. HDI was found to have a strong correlation to the GRDP of an area. Economic development affects community welfare as suggested by the HDI.
