Maternal mortality is one of the statistics showing the largest degree of disparity between the developed and developing countries. According to literature up to 2016 Tanzania was among the countries with unacceptably maternal mortality ratio and claimed to be still very far from reaching the Millennium developing goals. This study aimed at modeling of risk factors for   maternal mortality using pre collected data Based on Tanzania Demographic Health Survey (TDH 2015 -16.  Therefore secondary data were used to build the model. Data were reanalyzed by descriptive statistics using statistical software package STATA version 13. Based on data the result indicates that mortality was about 345 per 100,000 live births. The contributing factor was identified as education [OR= 0.81), Age group between 20 to 24 (OR = 2.84), distance to the health center (OR = 0.89), Marital status (OR = 1.39). It is concluded that, the risk factor of maternal death is age groups 20 – 24 and 25 – 29 years especially in the mainland rural.
