Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey 2018-2019
MICS provides up-to-date information on the situation of children and women and measures key indicators that allow countries to monitor progress towards development goals.
The North Macedonia Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) and the North Macedonia Roma Settlements MICS were carried out in 2018-2019 by the State Statistical Office, as part of the Global MICS Programme.
The overarching goal of MICS is to generate detailed, comparable data across a number of topics relevant to children, their rights and their wellbeing. Given the robustness of data and the rigorous methodology, MICS is well placed to address existing gaps, influence policies and programmes developed to benefit the children, mobilize the decision-makers and incentivize debates at a national and local level. Moreover, the survey measures key indicators that allow countries to generate data for use in national development plans and to monitor progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other internationally agreed upon commitments.
Technical support was provided by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), with financial support by UNICEF, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the British Embassy. The report contains detailed information on the survey methodology, and all standard MICS tables. For more information on the Global MICS Programme, please go to mics.unicef.org.
