Demographic bonus will be a demographic disaster if the quality of human resources is not well prepared. One of the problems that can hamper the preparation of quality human resources is the problem of stunting. West Java was taken as the object of research because it is a large province but has a stunting rate approaching 30%. The purpose of this study is to identify the dominant factors that influence the occurrence of one of the causes of stunting, namely low birth weight. This result is expected to be a recommendation for decision makers in an effort to reduce the occurrence of stunting. Many aspects can be risk factors for low birth weight babies such as social demographics, behavioural factors and environmental risks. Environmental factors such as infection conditions are related to cleanliness and lifestyle. Concern for this factor is certainly inseparable from the level of education of mothers and facilities that support a healthy lifestyle/quality. The data used are secondary data with the object district/city in West Java for three years. Panel data methods, fixed effects, random effects and pooling are performed to be compared with each other. The results of the study show that agricultural areas have a greater LBW than non-agricultural regions in the 2013–2015 period. The results of regression analysis with pooling showed a significant influence on the level of maternal education, coverage of medical services and access to clean water with the number of babies’ birth with LBW in West Java.
