Abstract: Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) ourbreaks is one of the lethal health problems in Indonesia. Aedes aegypti type of insect prolefiration as the main vector of DHF has affected climate factors, such as temperature, humidity, rainfall, and irradiation time. Therefore, to project the number of DHF cases is a very important assignment for the Ministry of Health to initiate contingencies planning as a prevention step in confronting the increasing number of DHF cases in nearby future. This study aims in developing a forecasting model in anticipating the number of cases and distribution pattern of DHF with multivariate time series using Vector Autoregressive Spatial Autocorrelation (VARSA). VARSA model uses multivariate time series, such as a number of DHF case, minimum temperature, maximum temperature, rainfall, average humidity, irradiation time and population density. This modeling is done in two steps: Vector Autoregressive modeling to predict the number of DHF cases and Local Indicators of Spatial Association (LISA) method to visualize distribution pattern of DHF based on the spatial connectivity of the number of DHF cases among the neighboring districts. This study covers 17 districts in Sleman Yogyakarta, resulting in low errors with Root Means Square Error (RMSE) of 2.10 and Mean Absolute Error (MAE ) of 1.51. This model produces smaller errors than using univariate time series methods, such as Linear regression and Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA).
