Anemia status was determined by measuring Hemoglobin level in blood sampie and puberty status was obtained through questionnaire. Result: Among the samples, 25 samples (20.8%) were anemics. Girls had 1.55 times chance to had anemia than boys, but statistically not significant (OR: 1.55; 95%CJ; 0.61-3.93). Girls had anemia 1,55 times higher than boys but statistically not significant (OR: 1,55; 95%CJ; 0,61-3,93). Among boys and girls, puberty wasnt related to anemia (OR: 1,31; 95%CJ, 0,53-3.25). Stratified analysis showed that the risk for having anemia among girls who had puberty was 1.5 times higher than girls who hadnt had puberty but statistically not significant (OR: 1,5; 95%CJ; 0,61-3,93). White reversely, boys who had puberty was had lower risk of having anemia, but statisticallynotsignificant(OR: 0.57/; 95%CJ; 0,135-2.422).
