South Kalimantan is a province in Indonesia with many youths and has the lowest score in Indonesia Youth Development Index (YDI) 2017. However, the lowest score is the gender and discrimination dimension which incomplete to be analyzed because there are some indicators that are not included in the dimension. To solve the problems, it is necessary to build a measurement that can monitor a smaller level. Through this research, the author provides a measurement for describing the level of youth development in classifications for South Kalimantan in 2018. This index is built with the analysis factor method. It consists of five dimensions used in Indonesian YDI 2017 with some additional indicators. The result of this research shows that the index is a valid measure due to its significant correlation with Indonesia YDI 2017. The other result is the youth living in urban areas tend to have a higher index than youth who live in rural areas. While the youth who are male, also tend to have a higher development index than the female population. The suggestion for the South Kalimantan government is to improve the youth, the development priority for every classification can be started from the classification and dimension of youth index with the lowest achievement.
