Summary 

The Belize Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2015-2016 is part of MICS5, 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 knowledge of HIV/AIDS. MICS also provides data for tracking progress toward Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. For the 2015-2016 Belize MICS, 4,699 women ages 15-49, and 3,573 men ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 4,636 households. Additionally, 2,537 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
