This study aims to provide empirical evidence on the implementation of autonomy in Indonesia that has been started since the enactment of Law No. 22/1999 on Regional Government. Specifically, this study would like to assess the welfare of the community in the regional expansion, both in the new and origin regions. The population and samples used in this study are all regions experiencing of expansion, both the new and origin regions. During the period 2004-2017, there were about 150 regions hat have been expanded. All of these expanded regions become the research samples. Test of differences in community welfare in new and origin regions is the focus of this study. In accordance with the mandate of Law No. 32/2004 on Regional Government, the expansion of regions in Indonesia aimed at forming new administrative areas, should be able to create better welfare of the community in the region. This study compares the welfare of the community in the area of origin, from before and after the expansion. This assessment is to obtain an empirical finding whether the splitting of the area undertaken has a positive impact on the area of origin. If the welfare of the community in the area of origin becomes better after splitting, then the government's decision on splitting the region is right. Vice versa. For new regions, this study will analyze the welfare trends of the community several years after the area was formed. If the dependence on the central government shows a decline while the welfare rate of the community shows an increase, then the decision of the new regional reconstruction through the split of the region is considered effective. Vice versa. The findings of this study will show which way the implementation of regional autonomy that has been implemented more than 20 years in Indonesia. This issue is very important because it is related to the mandate of Law No. 32/2004 which becomes the foundation of the law of regional expansion, the regional division should encourage the improvement of the welfare of the community in which the policy is applied. The potential contribution of this research is to obtain empirical evidence of the effectiveness of regional expansion.
