Abstract: In spite of advances in medical care and services urban women prefer home deliveries followed by public facility compared to private facility. The NFHS-1 and NFHS-2 data are utilized for this analysis. The reasons are many. Multinomial regression revealed that a good proportion of short-term migrants, respondents with low levels of education, lack of media exposure (radio, News paper reading and T.V.), low standard of living, SC/ST, are more log odds of using home and public facility than private facility.
