     Abstract Objective: To determine the influence of geographic, knowledge and behavioral factors on Opisthorchis viverrini (OV) infection in the Northeast of Thailand. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted by using four datasets of years 2016 and 2017. Generalized linear mixed model was performed to analyze an association between geographic, knowledge and behavioral factors and OV infection. Results: From total of 1885 participants, the prevalence of OV infection was 10.03%. Geographic factors statistically significant with OV infection in the Northeast region were a district that: had at least a dam and reservoir (Adj. OR = 4.21, 95%CI: 2.49-7.13, p < 0.001), had at least a weir (Adj. OR = 1.74, 95%CI: 1.09-2.77, p = 0.020), had > 50 dogs and cats per village (Adj. OR = 3.40, 95%CI: 2.17-5.31, p < 0.001), and had rice fields covered > 50% of its areas (Adj. OR = 1.91, 95%CI: 1.04-4.01, p = 0.036), as well as had low to moderate levels of knowledge (Adj. OR = 1.60, 95%CI: 1.32 to 1.94, p <0.001), consumed raw fish (Adj. OR = 1.90, 95%CI: 1.02 to 3.52, p = 0.040) and consumed processed raw fish (Adj. OR = 3.03, 95%CI: 2.20 to 4.18, p <0.001). Other significant covariates were gender and age of the respondents. Conclusion: OV infection was still a public health problem of the Northeast of Thailand. Geographic and demographic factors, knowledge, and raw fish products consumption behaviors had a high influence on OV infection.
