Summary 

The Congo Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2014-2015 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 2014-2015 Congo MICS, 11,300 women and 5,093 Men ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 12,811 households. Additionally, 9,169 questionnaires for children under five were completed by mothers or child caretakers. Water quality testing was conducted at a subset of households for the presence of E. Coli.
