Abstract

Pariaman City has a high prevalence of the nutritional status of toddlers, which one of the effects can
result in children experiencing stunting. In this study, it is intended to know the spatial spread of
stunting events or short toddlers in Pariaman City in 2019. The method used in this study is
quantitative descriptive with a secondary data analysis approach or secondary data is the main source
in this study. Data collection is conducted with spatially analyzed interviews and documentation using
a SIG approach and quantitatively with data tabulation. The results of the study spatially showed that
in 2019, almost all villages in Pariaman City had cases of stunting, except in Apar village-North
Pariaman sub-district, and BatangTajongkek village-South Pariaman sub-district. The highest cases
with more than 20 cases were found in South Tungkal village-North Pariaman sub-district (23 cases),
East Pauh village-East Pariaman sub-district (26 cases), Cimparuh village-central Pariaman subdistrict (38 cases), Taluak village-south Pariaman sub-district (26 cases) and Marunggi village-south
Pariaman sub-district (34 cases). Furthermore, quantitatively the results of tabulation data show the
central Pariaman sub-district and North Pariaman sub-district have a total of more than 150 cases of
stunting. The results of the interview explain that stunting events that occur in Pariaman City can be
caused by low awareness and knowledge of the mother about the necessary nutritional intake both
when the child is in the womb and at the age of a toddler. Besides, it can also be driven by the
economic condition of families with low incomes, the source of drinking water by using uns clean
water, and no availability of latrines in the home environment.
