Summary 

The Guyana Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2014 is part of MICS round 5, 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 Guyana MICS, 5,076 women ages 15-49 and 1,682 men ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 5,077 households. Additionally, 3,358 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
