Abstract
Tuberculosis is still one of the world's health problems. Tuberculosis cases generally occur in developing countries, including Indonesia. Indonesia has become one of the countries that have not reached the SDGs targets related to tuberculosis and become a country with the second largest number of new cases in the world after India. The high incidence of tuberculosis is related to the level of vulnerability. Therefore, it is essential to conduct research that can measure the level of vulnerability. This study intends to categorize provinces in Indonesia according to the level of social vulnerability of tuberculosis (TB). The data used in this research is sourced from the National Economic and Social Survey (Susenas) conducted by the Indonesian Bureau of Statistics (BPS). The method used in this research is factor analysis. From factor analysis can be identified four social vulnerability factors (housing and exposure of smoke factor, economic factor, social demography factor, and welfare factor) able to explain variance equal to 73,40 percent. The four factors formed are then used to form a Social Vulnerability Index or Indeks Kerawanan Sosial (IKS). Based on the results of the grouping of provinces according to the IKS, there are 6 provinces with very low social vulnerability, 4 provinces with low social vulnerability, 14 provinces with middle social vulnerability, and 8 provinces with high social vulnerability. Two provinces in Indonesia are categorized into very high social vulnerability group which are Papua and East Nusa Tenggara.
