Yulia Resti, Noriszura Ismail, Marieska Verawaty

Abstract



Palembang, the capital of South Sumatra province, has a high potential for the occurrence of dengue fever. The purpose of this paper is to map the incidence of dengue fever into five areas in Palembang based on the multinomial regression approach. The respondent of this research are housewife who has a family member experiencing dengue fever. The results show that the decision to map the incidence of dengue fever for respondents is affected by family member who get dengue fever (age, gender and blood type), respondent (age, education level, and knowledge of dengue fever), and head of family (age). This model is good enough for mapping the incidence of dengue fever into five areas in Palembang based on both the Nagelkerke value (0.784) and the correct percentage of respondents mapping (65.6%).

Keywords
