The Mauritania Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey 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), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. For the 2015 Mauritania MICS, 14,342 women ages 15-49, and 4,691 men ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 11,765 households. Additionally, 10,663 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
