Summary 

The Dominican Republic Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2014, also called the Dominican Republic National Multipurpose Household Survey 2014, is part of MICS5, an international survey initiative to monitor the situation of children and women. The survey is also part of the Dominican Republic National Multipurpose Household Survey series. 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). For the 2014 Dominican Republic MICS, 29,200 women ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 31,167 households. Additionally, 29,200 questionnaires for children under five were completed. Men were not included in the survey. Reports for this survey may also be available through the Dominican Republic's National Statistics Office.
