Summary 

The Panama Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2013 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 2013 Panama MICS, 9,431 women ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 9,882 households. Additionally, 5,846 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
