This study examines the effect of the immunization programme in four rural areas of Bangladesh. Using a multilevel discrete time hazards model, this paper identifies the demographic and socioeconomic characteristics which influence the uptake of immunization. However, even after controlling for these observed factors, a considerable amount of variation between households remains due to unobserved characteristics. There is also a large amount of geographical variation in the uptake of immunization with evidence of village level variation within intervention areas.
