death compared to the poorest. Female worker mothers with wealth status in the middle category have a
probability of 0.702 times compared to the poorest to experience neonatal death. Meanwhile, the richest

death. Meanwhile, female worker mothers who made ANC visits ?4 times had a probability of 0.331 times
