Summary 

The Cameroon Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2014 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), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. For the 2014 Cameroon MICS, 9,861 women ages 15-49 and 4,851 men ages 15-59 were successfully interviewed from 10,213 households. Additionally, 7,081 questionnaires for children under five were completed. The Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) questionnaire on tobacco consumption was substituted for the standard MICS5 tobacco use module.
