Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey

Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey - Macedonian version

Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey - English version

MICS is an international household survey programme developed and supported by UNICEF. Conducted every five years, it provides up-to-date information on the situation of children and women, which helps monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals and other international commitments.  The survey is a nationally representative sample survey of households, women and children. In addition to carrying out MICS on a nationally representative sample, in this country a survey was also carried out on a separate sample of Roma settlements. The findings are presented around various children`s rights: health and nutrition, pre-school and education, protection from violence and abuse, and life satisfaction.

The numbers show that progress is notable in many areas both on the national level and among the Roma living in Roma settlements, but disparities in some areas still persist requiring a renewed focus and investment to ensure that all children can enjoy their rights.
