The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey Six (MICS 6) was conducted in 2017/18 by
Ghana Statistical Service in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of
Education, Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources, Ministry of Gender, Children
and Social Protection, Ghana Health Service and the Ghana Education Service as part
of the Global MICS Programme. Technical support was provided by the United Nations
Children’s Fund (UNICEF), with government funding and financial support of UNICEF,
KOICA, UNDP, USAID and the World Bank through the Statistics for Results Facility –
Catalytic Fund (SRF-CF).

The Global MICS Programme was developed by UNICEF in the 1990s as an international
multi-purpose household survey programme to support countries in collecting
internationally comparable data on a wide range of indicators on the situation of
children and women. MICS surveys measure key indicators that allow countries to
generate data for use in policies, programmes, and national development plans, and
to monitor progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other
internationally agreed upon commitments.
