Abstract
Early marriage is a marriage conducted by women at the age before 21 years. Early marriage can have negative effects on health. Parents' socio-demographic factors such as education level, employment status, and the number of children can cause early marriage. In 2017, Tembalang District had the highest early marriage incidence in Semarang. 97 women were conducting early marriages in Tembalang District in 2018, Sendangguwo (18 WUS) and Meteseh (18 WUS) Subdistricts had the highest incidence of early marriage. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship of parents' socio-demographic characteristics with the incidence of early marriage in Sendangguwo and Meteseh Sub-District, Tembalang District, Semarang in 2018.
