Abstract

Dengue fever can be infected in all parts of Indonesia, especially in dense population area including East
Java. Jember is the Municipality in East Java which experience dengue fever cases. In 2016, Dengue fever
IR in Jember Municipality is 53.66 per 100.000 populations. The purpose of this study was to see the
distribution and analyze the relationship of environmental factors with the incidence rate of dengue fever in
Jember Municipality.
The type of research used was observational research with the ecological study approach in Jember
Municipality with a sample size of 52 villages/sub-districts. The dependent variable is the incidence rate
of dengue fever and the independent variable is the altitude, senior high school and above education, poor
household and ABJ. The results were analyzed using correlation test.
The results of the research showed that there is the proportion of senior high school and above education
is almost similar and most of the proportion is low because <50%, most of low poor household proportion
and most of low ABJ proportion and have not reached target, which is still <95%. The correlation results
showed that the variables of senior high school and above education (p-value = 0.007; r = -0.373) and ABJ
is correlated with the dengue fever incidence rate (p-value = 0.001; r = -0.434).
The conclusion of this research is there is correlation between factors of senior high school and above
education an ABJ with dengue fever incidence rate while the village altitude and poor household factors are
not correlated.
