Abstract: 

Objective: To evaluate the determinants of antenatal care utilization of scheduled caste women in Thiruvarur district, Tamilnadu. Methods: Multistage stratified random sampling technique was applied to select the respondents from the Thiruvarur district for the research purpose. There were 1164 households with the target population. Totally 1203 women in the age group of 15-24 were identified in all the five blocks. Thus, in all, 661 respondents were selected following circular systematic random sampling technique. Of these 661 respondents, 605 completed the questionnaire, 32 respondents declined to participate and 24 respondents completed scheduled that had to be discarded of substantial inconsistency, yielding a response rate of 91.5 percent. Results: Overwhelming majority of the SC women made at least one visit for the antenatal care service during their pregnancy episode (94.4 percent). Only ten percent of SC women received full ANC during their pregnancy period. As compared with illiterate women, women with higher education were about 16 times more likely to receive full ANC. The proportion of women who receive full ANC increased steadily and was positively associated with the wealth indexes, when compared to the poorest, the receiving pattern of full ANC on richest women 26 times higher. Conclusion: Education of women, standard of living index, birth order, exposure to mass media, distance between health care facility and home were significantly associated received complete ANC in the study area. Hence, improving ANC services could be a good strategy to promote status of pregnant mother as well the new born child.
