Summary 

The Nepal 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 HIV/AIDS. MICS also provides data for tracking progress toward Millennium Development Goals (MDGS), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. For the Nepal 2014 MICS, 14,162 women ages 15-49 from 14,162 households were successfully interviewed. Additionally, 5,349 questionnaires for children under five years of age were completed and 1,492 water quality tests were conducted.
