Obesity Indonesia Children Detection According to Macronutrients by Using Binary Logistic Regression and Radial Basis Function Neural Networks

Brodjol Sutijo Suprih Ulama, Hanny Adiati


Childhood obesity is a health problem in Indonesia. Based on Health Research, prevalence obesity of children age 6-12 years was 9.2%in 2010, the rate increased in 2013 to double to 18,8%. Obesity is a disease that has multifactorcauses.Theone of contributing obesity factor is determined by intake of nutrients. Macronutrients (energy, protein, fat and carbohydrate)that enter the body is a major obesity factor. Children obesity status can be detected by using macronutrients variables.Binary Logistic Regression and Radial Basis Neural Network (RBFNN) are methods that can be use to classify object. One of the important things in RBFNN is the weigh ofhidden nodes. Self Organizing Maps (SOM) is a method to determinedweight of hidden nodes on RBFNN (SOM-RBFNN). Based on RBFNN models, 2 nodes inhidden layer of RBFNN give the best classification object. Binary logistic regression give the classification accuracy 90.00% for boys and 93.40% for girl. SOM-RBFNN give the classification accuracy 90.023% for boys and 93.43% for girl.
