This study aims to investigate the level of differences in the intergenerational social trust in the context of a society in Indonesia – linked to the traditional value of Gotong Royong. The study uses data from the 5th edition of the Indonesia Family Live Survey (IFLS), which was published in 2014 and involving about 24,662 respondents spread across 13 provinces in Indonesia. The variables used are 1) Age variable which is divided into 3 generations (baby boomers’ generation, x generation, and Millennial generation), 2) social trust variables which include a) measure the level of individual trust in their neighbors b) measure the level of individual trust in people of the same ethnic group. c) measure the level of individual trust in people of the same religion. The ANOVA test for data shows a downward trend in the level of social trust between baby boomers, generation X, and millennials; which means it is explained as a change in the value of cooperation in the rapid transformation of Indonesian society.
