  1. Note: AOR Adjusted Odds Ratio, CI Confidence Interval, Ref. Reference category, AORs in bold are significant at p < 0.05
  2. Model 1a-e: Effect of each of the factors was estimated separately for (a) facility readiness for type of methods, (b) provider told client about the side-effects of the method, (c) provider told results of tests and examinations, (d) provider encouraged client to ask questions, and (e) client felt respected. All models were adjusted for client’s age, parity, education, and social group
  3. Model 2: Effect of all factors were estimated together and adjusted for client’s age, parity, education, and social group
