ABSTRACT

The main objective of this study was to examine the relationship between neonatal anthropometric indicators (Baby head circumference, Baby full length and Baby weight) and maternal socio-demographic factors (Gravidity, Parity, Educational level, Age, occupation of mother and number of ANC visit) using canonical correlation analysis. The neonatal anthropometric indicators were considered as depended (Y) variables whiles maternal socio-demographic factors were considered as independent variables (X). The outcome of the canonical correlation analysis showed that, there exists a significant relationship between neonatal anthropometric indicators (Baby head circumference, Baby full length and Baby weight) and maternal socio-demographic factors (Gravidity, Parity, Educational level, Age, occupation of mother and number of ANC visit). The total shared variance between the two set of variables was 69.8%. The study also showed that Baby head circumference has a positive relationship with maternal Age and also negative relationship with the remaining of the maternal socio-demographic factors whiles Baby full length and Baby weight also has a positive relationship with all the maternal socio-demographic factors used in the study except maternal Age.
