Current study aimed to explore the risk factors of stunting based on priority-region status in Indonesia. We extracted national basic health survey in 2018. We defined stunting based on height for age, which Z-score<-2.0, was categorized as stunting. Priority-region categorized by the National Team for Acceleration of Poverty Reduction, Republic of Indonesia, i.e., 100 priority-regions determined. We also observed children's characteristics, i.e., age, sex, birth weight and height, gestational age, weaning age, diarrhea, immunization, breastfeeding, and supplementary feeding. Parent's and household's characteristics were observed as well. Binary regression logistic was performed to conclude risk factors of stunting. We concluded that male children, lower mother's and father's height were the consistent risk factors for priority-, non-priority, and total-regions. Without consider priority-region, we concluded that family members, sex, access to health services, antenatal-care, mother's- and father' s-height, parent's education level, and ferrous-sulfate supplementation altogether were the risk factors for stunting in Indonesia
