Abstract

The highest incidence of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) in West Sumatra Province from 2014 to 2017 is in 2016 with 3,952 cases. Then, the lowest one is in 2014 (2,282 cases). The purpose of this research was to determine the correlation between population density and rainfall toward DHF in West Sumatra Province in 2014-2017. Quantitative research methods by using Pearson Correlation test and secondary data. The populations were the cases of DHF in West Sumatra Province from 2014 to 2017. The Samples were 76 cases. Univariate and bivariate had been used to analyze the data by using Pearson correlation test with α = 0.05. From the results of this research, it can be concluded that there were 74 (97.4%) cases of DHF and 2 (2.6%) the DHF cases did not find. The highest population density in 2014-2017 was less dense population (51-250 people), 36 (47.4%). The rainfall in 2014-2017, there were 58 (76.3) districts or cities were in medium rainfall (101-300 mm). Moreover, there was a correlation between rainfall (p = 0.015 and r = 0.279) toward DHF incidence and there was no correlation between population density (p = 0.913 and r = 0.013) toward the incidence of DHF. In short, that rainfall is the most influence factor toward DHF. It is expected to the community to do some efforts to prevent dengue fever.
