Scabies is a skin disease caused by infestation and sensitization towards Sarcoptes scabiei. It occurs easily in moist and densely-populated vicinities. This research was conducted to analyze the relationship between residential density and personal characteristics towards the incidences of scabies among students of boarding school Raudatul Ulum and Mustaqimus Sunnah, South Sumatra. This research was an epidemiological method using cross-sectional analytic approach, conducted in July 2018. The populations were all students of boarding school and the samples selected were 93 respondents with proportional random sampling. The measuring instruments were cardinal scabies physical diagnostic and questionnaire of demographic interviewing. Obtained results were then analyzed with Chi-Square, Logistic Regression Statistical Tests, and correspondence analysis. The result of scabies prevalence was 59,6% and 56,5% respectively. Logistic Regression testing result yielded the free variable bearing the most dominant influence towards scabies incidence, which was the residential density (OR: 5.850 95% CI: 2.369-14.445). The significant relationship towards the occurrence of scabies should be further investigated in order to prepare for elimination programs.
