Summary 

The El Salvador Multiple Cluster Indicator 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 El Salvador MICS, 13,350 women ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 12,507 households. Additionally, 7,340 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
