Democratic Republic of the Congo Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2001
The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) is an international household survey program developed by UNICEF with the purpose of monitoring the situation of children and women in developing countries. The primary areas of concern are health (particularly HIV/AIDS), education, and child protection. To date, there have been 4 international rounds of the MICS. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) was surveyed in rounds 1 (1995), 2 (2001), and 4 (2010).
The DRC MICS2 2001 was developed and conducted to measure progress toward the World Summit for Children goals. Data collection for the 2010 DRC MICS took place between April and October 2001.
