The relative illlPortance of thernexplanatory background variables were examined using the logistic regression Illodel. Thernmultilevel model reflects the existence of significant variations in the mean effects of thernpredictor of currently dropout from contraceptive use at regional level. Dropout and currentlyrncontraceptive using are treated as the outcome of a dichotomous dependent variable in thernmodel.rnThe result of descriptive analysis indicated that contraceptive dropout rate was 6 1.7%. High ratesrnof dropout from contraceptive use was observed in Arnhara (77%) followed by Afar (76%).rnAmong the main reasons for dropping out from contraceptive use are, the need for Illore childrenrn(65.2%) followed by health concern (56.6%).rnBased on univariate and multi variate result six factors (predictors) associated with contraceptiverndropout were selected. These predictors were generic reasons such as husband 's disapproval,rndifficulty in getting modem contraceptive methods, misinfonnation about religious aspects ofrnfallli ly planning, etc, region, type of place of residence, accessibility of family planning lessonsrnthrough media, access to health facility and number of children alive.
