Abstract: Background: Global developmental delay (GDD) is experienced in 1-3% of the population of children aged under 5 years and is one of the main problems in children. The level of social quotient (SQ) is one of the factors that can influence GDD in children. One of the measuring tools for social development is calculating SQ using the Vineland Social Maturity Scale (VSMS). Objective: To prove the relationship between SQ level delay and GDD in children aged 1 to 6 years at Sanglah General Hospital. Methods: The mean value of SQ in children with GDD was 77,8. The result of bivariate analysis obtained an odds ratio (OR) was 3,1 (p=0,03; IK 95% 0,9-10,1). Breastfeeding was protective variable with the incidence of GDD in children (adjusted RO 0,11; IK 95% 0.01-0.58; p=0,01). Conclusion: Low SQ level is a risk factor for GDD in children.
