ABSTRACT
This work titled ‘Statistical Determination of Socio-economic and Demographic Factors that Influence Contraceptive use by Men in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State’ aimed at identifying the determinants of contraceptive use among married men in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Multi-stage sampling design was employed in the selection of a sample of four hundred and sixty one (461) married men for the study. Descriptive analysis was employed to compute percentages of the variables. Cross tabulation was employed to examine the relationships of the independent variables and contraceptive use at 0.05 significance level.  Logistic regression was used to estimate the relative influence of socioeconomic and demographic factors on contraceptive use at 0.05 significance level. Cross tabulation result revealed that there is a significant relationship between the independent variables and contraceptive use. Logistic regression result showed that the significant socio-economic and demographic determinants of contraceptives use among the study sample are marriage duration of at least five years, religion, education, occupation, parity, number of living children, and age. The Hosmer Lemeshow test for goodness of fit of the logistic regression model is 87.9 percent and is highly significant (p-value > 0.05). This indicates that the model fitted is adequate.
