The use of contraceptives in Indonesia among married women has tended to be stagnant in the last 3 years. Indonesia's 2017 demographic and health survey report reports that the prevalence of modern contraceptive use was lower among women in urban areas (59%) than in rural areas (55%). This study aims to analyze the determinant of modern contraceptive use in married women in Indonesian urban. This study is a quantitative study with a cross-sectional design. We used secondary data from Indonesia Health and Demographics Survey 2017. The population of this study was married women. We got a sample was 15,520 respondents. We analyze the predictor of modern contraceptive use by using logistic regression. Respondents using modern contraceptives were 53.5%. Age, education level, number of living children, number of ideal children, employment status, economic status, and region have a significant association with modern contraceptive use in Indonesian urban. The most dominant factor associated with modern contraceptive use is the number of living children >2 children. Proper dissemination of information on the use of modern contraceptives needs to be expanded to increase contraceptive use.
