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. The 2019–2020 Kosovo MICS and 2019–2020 Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian Communities in Kosovo MICS present up-to-date information for assessing the socio-economic conditions and demographic situation of women and children. The data and indicators produced by MICS will serve as a critical source for measuring progress towards national objectives, and for informing the design of future programme interventions.
The objective of this report is to facilitate the timely dissemination and use of results from the 2019–2020 Kosovo MICS and the 2019–2020 Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian Communities in Kosovo MICS. The report contains detailed information on the survey methodology, and all standard MICS tables. The report is accompanied by a series of Statistical Snapshots of the main findings of the survey.
