Kyrgyzstan: Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey
The Kyrgyzstan Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) was carried out in 2014 by the National Statistics Committee with the support of UNICEF.
The Kyrgyzstan Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) was carried out in 2014 by the National Statistics Committee of the Kyrgyz Republic, as part of the global MICS programme. UNICEF provided technical support and funded it jointly with UNFPA.
The global MICS programme was developed by UNICEF in the 1990s as an international household survey programme to support countries in the collection of 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 and programmes, and to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other internationally agreed upon commitments. The 2014 Kyrgyzstan MICS presents up-to-date information for assessing the situation of children and women as well as to provide data for monitoring existing strategies and action plans. This MICS will also furnish data for designing future programme interventions and support evidence based planning.
