Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey Final Report 2019
Monitoring the situation of children and women in Nepal
The Nepal Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) was carried out in 2019 by Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) in collaboration with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), as part of the Global MICS Programme. Technical support was provided by the UNICEF, with government funding and financial support of UNICEF.
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 objective of this report is to facilitate the timely dissemination and use of results from the Nepal 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.
