Launch of the largest ever household survey in Mongolia

Today, in Mongolia the National Statistics Office (NSO), UNICEF and UNFPA released the preliminary results of the Social Indicator Sample Survey (SISS/MICS5). The survey, the largest of its kind ever conducted in Mongolia included 15,500 households and combined the Multiple Indicators Cluster survey (MICS), Reproductive Health Survey (RHS) and Demographic and Health Survey (DHS). In addition, the survey marked the introduction of the use of tablets for large-scale data collection, resulting in significant time and resources savings and allowing for the real time quality assurance of the collection and analysis process. The results analyze trends and progress in several areas of child well-being with some encouraging overall trends such as:

- Decline in child morality.
- Improvement in nutrition indicators.
- Increased access to internet and technology.
- Almost universal access to basic education.

While the results will be further disaggregated by dimensions such as geographic location, wealth quintile and region, other indicators related to child protection, substance abuse and knowledge of HIV/AIDS among youth show signs of stagnation and will require focused interventions.
