The factors that cause anemia in women of reproductive age are social, cultural and economic factors, as well as nutritional factors. This study aims to determine the factors that cause anemia in women of reproductive age. The research method used descriptive research with a total population of 56 and a sample of 49 women of reproductive age who suffered from anemia. The results of the study were 42.8% of respondents who suffered from anemia had a basic or low education, 51% of respondents with a low level of knowledge suffered from anemia, 55.1 % who suffer from anemia have a poor nutritional status and 85.7% of respondents who suffer from anemia have an unhealthy diet.
