John Jaya Abdillah, Vinc. Hadi Wiyono, Bhimo Rizky Samudro

Abstract: Economic crisis occurring in 1998 leads Indonesia to occupy the dullest side of economy. The people?s decreased purchasing ability indicates that this condition impacts on the people?s welfare level. Poverty, indicated with the decreased ability of fulfilling human?s basic need, increases dramatically. This research, in addition to studying the consumption pattern in urban and rural areas, also will find out the relationship between poverty and consumption pattern of community in Central Java. The analysis method used was descriptive quantitative one by calculating rank spearman?s correlational coefficient test value. The result of research showed that food consumption pattern in urban areas tends to be lower than that in rural areas. From the result of rank spearman?s correlational coefficient test value, it could be seen that there is a relationship between the proportion of poor population and the expenditure per capita of population. It could be assumed that the higher the consumption of an area, the more prosperous is the people in the area or the higher is the income of the people in the area
