Multiple indicator cluster survey 2014 - key findings
Serbia Roma Settlements
The 2014 Serbia Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) and 2014 Serbia Roma Settlements Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) were carried out in 2014 by the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia as part of the global MICS programme.
The global MICS programme was developed by UNICEF in the 1990s as an international household survey programme to collect 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 disaggregated nature of MICS data (gender, area, education, wealth etc.) provides insight into disparities between different population groups within both surveys and allows for evidence-based policy-making aimed at social inclusion of the most vulnerable.
The 2014 Serbia MICS and 2014 Serbia Roma Settlements MICS provide up-to-date and comparable data that will enable decision makers within the Government and all other stakeholders to critically assess progress made and to put additional efforts in areas that require more attention.
