In 2006, 386 (58%) out of 667 pregnant women in the Puskesmas working area of sawang sub district, Kabupaten Aceh Utara suffered from iron deficiency anemia.

A purposive sampling as well as chi-square test was used to analyze the data with the alpha 0.05. Results of uni-variation analysis showed that 69.8% respondent suffered from iron deficiency anemia. From the results of bi-variation analysis found that there was relationship between level of education, knowledge about nutrition, eating habits, consumption of iron tablets and family income of respondents with anemia (p value <0.05).
