Stunting is one of the health problems that is closely related to the delayed growth and development of children. Children can be classified as stunting if their height is less than -2SD. Along in the 2018 stunting had been decreased from 37,2% to 30,8%. Those data were still higher than WHO restricted prevalence in one district which is only 20%. Stunting does not only affect children’s physical but also mental development, means that the children can’t achieve their full height and cognitive potentials as an adult as well. The purpose of this study was to determine the factors associated with stunting on the children under five s in the working area of Puskesmas Ceper Klaten. This study used non experimental analytic with cross sectional approach. Sampling technique in this study was done by stratifed random sampling. There are 449 children under five in Ngawonggo village and 82 of them are as respondents in this study. The data were collected by questionnaire and stature meter. The data were analyzed by employing the chi square and double logistic (pvalue<0,05). The bivariate analysis shows that there are correlation between low birth weight (13,4%) pvalue=0,004, Family income (18,3%)pvalue=0,003, and nutrition intake (20,7%) pvalue=0,027 and stunting that happened on the children under five. Meanwhile, the multivariate analysis shows that stunting is mostly influenced by family income during gestation, (pvalue=0,004) (OR=0,188). Parents or Family income significantly Influences stunting on the children under five.
