Cilamaya District is one of the areas of Karawang Regency located on the coast of Java Sea, which directly borders the sea. This region has marine potential, a diversity of fishery resources and water or coastal tourism objects that can be developed. This potential has economic value for the welfare of coastal communities. However, despite this diverse potential, welfare levels in coastal areas are still minimal due to poverty. In general, coastal communities are marginalized not only geographically but also in the internal aspects of the community itself. Therefore, given various social phenomena, development and empowerment are required in the region. The development of the maritime sector in national economic development has always been a marginalized position (peripheral sector). The aim of this research is to analyze the simultaneous and partial influence of the variables employment, household expenditure, income and wealth on welfare. Using the survey method, a sample of 174 people was drawn and a questionnaire was used as a data collection instrument. This research uses primary data and secondary data. The data analysis used is multiple linear regression analysis. The results of the study show that at the same time the variables employment, household expenditure, income and property have a significant influence on the variable welfare. In some cases, the variables income and wealth have a positive and significant effect on welfare. Meanwhile, the household expenditure variable is positive but has no significant impact on welfare. The variable employment is negative and has no significant influence on welfare.
