Abstract: Objective This study was aimed to identify factors affecting neonatal mortality in Ethiopia. Results According to the multilevel multivariable logistic regression analysis, the odds of neonatal mortality was significantly associated with husbands with no education (AOR?=?2.30, 95% CI 1.10, 4.83), female birth (AOR?=?0.57, 95% CI 0.39, 0.83), twin birth (AOR?=?13.62, 95% CI 7.14, 25.99), pre-term birth (AOR?=?15.07, 95% CI 7.80, 29.12) and mothers with no antenatal care (ANC) visit during pregnancy (AOR?=?1.90 95% CI 1.11, 3.25).
