Summary 

The Barbados Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2012 is part of MICS4, an international survey initiative to monitor the situation of children and women. Topics commonly covered in MICS include immunization, education, child and maternal health, family planning and HIV/AIDS. MICS also provides data for tracking progress toward Millennium Development Goals (MDGS), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. 1,543 women ages 15-49 from 2,872 households were successfully interviewed. 465 questionnaires for children under five were completed. Men were not included in the survey sample.
