Body Mass Index (BMI) of household head and wife less than 18,5 kg/m2 has high agreement for targeting. 4. Anthropometrics indcator of children under 5 years using cut off point <-2 Z score and <-3 Z score have high agreement to targeting, except for weight-for-height using cut off point <-3 Z score.

Key Words: poverty indicator, anthropometrics, agreement of indicator
