Summary 

The Mauritania Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2011 is part of MICS4, 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 2011 Mauritania MICS, 12,754 women ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 10,116 households. Additionally, 9,278 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
