Abstract : Antenatal care (ANC) is an effective way to prevent neonatal death. The study was aimed at analyzing antenatal care as a predictor of neonatal death in rural Indonesia. This study uses secondary data from the 2017 Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS). Stratification and multistage random sampling yielded 19,283 women aged 15-49 years with live births in the last 5 years in rural Indonesia. Data were analyzed using a Binary Logistic Regression test. Women in rural Indonesia who did ANC ≥ 4 times had a 0.424 times chance of experiencing neonatal death compared to women who did ANC < 4 times. Women in rural Indonesia who were not employed have the possibility of 0.472 times to experience neonatal death compared to employed women. Primiparous women in rural Indonesia were 0.435 times more likely to experience neonatal death than multiparous women. Women in rural Indonesia who did not experience complications during pregnancy were 0.551 times more likely to experience neonatal death than women who experienced complications during pregnancy. It was concluded that ANC is a predictor of neonatal death in rural Indonesia. Other variables that were proven to be predictors were employment status, parity, and complications during pregnancy
