Spatial Structural Equation Modeling (SEM spatial) is a quite effective method in analyzing spatial data that has a major effect namely spatial dependency and spatial heterogeneity. Dengue fever is a global health problem nowadays and the future due to the increasing number of the patients. The case of dengue fever is a spatial data. So that if it was still used Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) in analyzing. There were some assumptions that were not met. They were independence and error of homogeneity. So invalid parameter estimation was obtained. The general objective of this study was to develop a structural equation by using spatial approach in the case of dengue fever in Bone Regency, the Province of South Sulawesi. The findings show that: Estimator of structural equation modeling by involving weight spatial is described as

The best spatial structural equation modeling in the case of dengue fever in Bone is:

High and low case of dengue fever in Bone is influenced by the environmental factor and the behavior.

Keywords: SEM, Spatial, Dengue.
