AB  - Recent advances in statistical methods enable the study of correlation among
      outcomes through joint modeling, thereby addressing spillover effects. By joint
      modeling, we refer to simultaneously analyzing two or more different response
      variables emanating from the same individual. Using the 2011 Bangladesh
      Demographic and Health Survey, we jointly address spillover effects between
      contraceptive use (CUC) and knowledge of HIV and other sexually transmitted
      diseases. Jointly modeling these two outcomes is appropriate because certain
      types of contraceptive use contribute to the prevention of HIV and STDs and the
      knowledge and awareness of HIV and STDs typically lead to protection during
      sexual intercourse. In particular, we compared the differences as they pertained 
      to the interpretive advantage of modeling the spillover effects of joint modeling
      HIV and CUC as opposed to addressing them separately. We also identified risk
      factors that determine contraceptive use and knowledge of HIV and STDs among
      women in Bangladesh. We found that by jointly modeling the correlation between
      HIV knowledge and contraceptive use, the importance of education decreased. The
      HIV prevention program had a spillover effect on CUC: what seemed to be impacted 
      by education can be partially contributed to one's exposure to HIV knowledge. The
      joint model revealed a less significant impact of covariates as opposed to both
      separate models and standard models. Additionally, we found a spillover effect
      that would have otherwise been undiscovered if we did not jointly model. These
      findings further suggested that the simultaneous impact of correlated outcomes
      can be adequately addressed for the commonality between different responses and
      deflate, which is otherwise overestimated when examined separately.
