Finding of the study shows significance if it has a significance level of ρ < 0.05 reflected in 95% confidence interval. Results:Economic status of households have been the most dominant variable towards the shackling practice. Households in the quintile 1 group have the highest probability (OR adj 2.32; 95% CI 1.24-;4.34). Households in quintile 2 group have nearly similar probability with that of quintile 1 (OR adj 2.15;95% CI 1.14-;4.40). Households with low economic characteristic show more ignorance regarding the availability of health facility and live in rural areas for nearly half part.
