Abstract

Tuberculosis is closely linked to socio-demographic characteristics such as education, employment and age groups. Analysis of subset data of Riskesdas 2007 (Central Java Province) was carried out to determine the relationship between socio-demographic characteristics and pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). There were 62,827 respondents who had been classified as suspects of TB based on their perceived symptoms. A logistic regression was performed to obtain the risk factor of tuberculosis prevalence and stratified by sex group. The independent variables include age groups, level of education, employment status and residency (urban- rural). The results showed that the risk factors of TB prevalence were level of education and employment status. The risk of TB was higher among female group who did not complete primary schools (OR: 3.02%). Moreover, female group who workd was more likely to suffer from TB compared to who did not (OR: 3.03%). This paper also discusses the findings of Riskesdas 2010 and 2013 as descriptive comparisons.
