The prevalence of anemia among women of childbearing age (WCA) in Lampung Province in 2011 was 25,9%. Anemia in WCA usually continues until the pregnancy that may increase the risk of complications in pregnancy and childbirth. The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship of chronic energy malnutrition and iron intake with anemia in preconception women of childbearing age. This was an observational analytic study using cross sectional design. The study was conducted in Terbanggi Besar subdistrict, district of Central Lampung from August to November 2016. Samples were 183 preconception women of childbearingaged 20- to 40-years-old, taken with sampling cluster techniques. Chronic energy malnutrition data were assessed by measurement of mid-arm circumference, iron intake was obtained through 2x24h food recall, and anemia by measuring haemoglobin levels through blood tests. Data were analyzed using chi square test and fisher exact test. The results showed that26.8% of respondents suffered from anemia, 44,3% chronic energy malnutrition, and 95,7% less iron. The results showed that chronic energy malnutritionhas significant correlation (p = 0.02) with anemia, and iron intake have no correlation (p = 0.53) with anemia. Respondents with chronic energy malnutrition were 2.3 times more likely to have anemia than those without chronic energy malnutrition. Conclusions: There was a significant relationship between chronic energy malnutritionwith anemia in preconception women of childbearing agein Terbanggi Besar subdistrictdistrict of Central Lampung.
