The Palestine 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 Palestine MICS, 13,367 women ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 10,182 households. Additionally, 7,816 mothers or caretakers of children under five were interviewed. Men were not included in the sample.
