Abstract: Dengue is one of the important diseases in tropical countries like India. The study is to analyze the Geo ecological relationship of dengue in Madurai city, especially ecological and its association with selected socio-economic, environmental, behavioral and medical aspects.

The data was analyzed by multi variant statistical technique ‘Factor analysis’ is used to find the major dimensions and interrelationship between dengue and geo ecological variables. The main objective is to analyze the geo-ecological variation and associated factors about the prevalence of dengue. The study identified 14 major dimensions with a total percentage of 75.7. The major findings of the study is that house hold cement containers, plastic containers, and open containers etc.; used for storing drinking water are the main breeding centers of mosquitoes and the increasing or decreasing rate of dengue depends upon on the type of surrounding environment.
