Abstract

Wasting is a condition of a children characterized by a lack of weight by measuring weight for height. Currently, to monitor the growth conditions for childrens in Indonesia, we use the Towards Healthy Card called as Kartu Menuju Sehat (KMS) which is guided by WHO 2005. The samples used to design WHO-2005 standard charts are children from Brazil, Ghana, India, USA, Norway, and Oman that have different physical conditions from children in Indonesia. Therefore, the using of standards growth charts from other countries cause incompatibility with Indonesian's children growth. To illustrate the growth patterns of children in East Java, we use the semiparametric least square spline estimator that gives more flexible pattern. In this study we used weight (kg) as a response variable, height (cm) as a predictor variable for nonparametric component, and gender as a predictor variable for parametric component. The results show the semiparametric least square spline estimator can explain the growth patterns of children well because it has determination coefficient (R2) of 99.78% and mean square error (MSE) of 0.0353. The standard chart of weight for height of boy is higher than that of girl and percentage of wasting nutritional status of girl greater than that of boy.
