Since the inception of MICS in the 1990s, over 300 surveys have been carried out in more than 100 countries.

MICS played an important role in creating evidence for monitoring progress towards Millennium Development Goals. In Belarus MICS was conducted in 2005 and 2012 by the National Statistical Committee (Belstat). As part of the global effort to further develop national capacities to generate and analyse high quality and disaggregated data UNICEF launched the sixth round of MICS in October 2016 – specifically designed to meet policy-makers’ needs in the Sustainable Development Goal(SDG) era. MICS 6 will be conducted in 2018 within UNICEF and Belstat joint project “Assistance in strengthening national statistical capacity in the production and dissemination of information on the situation of children, women and persons with disabilities to monitor the implementation of the SDGs by the Republic of Belarus” with the support of the World Bank.
