Summary 

The Oman 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 Oman MICS, 10,659 women ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 5,941 households. Additionally, 4,616 questionnaires for children under 5 were completed.
