Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS)

UNICEF Moldova 2014

   The MICS is an international household survey programme developed by UNICEF. This survey provides up-to-date information on the situation of children, women and men, and measures key indicators that allow countries to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals and other internationally agreed upon commitments. The 2012 MICS was carried out in Moldova as part of the fourth global round of MICS surveys. The survey provides a solid base of comparable data in the areas of health, education, protection and well-being of families and children.
