Summary 

The Sao Tome and Principe Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2014 is part of MICS 5, an international survey initiative to monitor the situation of children and women. MICS provides data for tracking progress toward Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. For the 2014 Sao Tome and Principe MICS, 2,935 women ages 15-49 and 2,267 men ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 3,492 households. Additionally, 2,030 questionnaires for children under 5 were completed. Blood tests were conducted for the presence of HIV infection in men and women ages 15-49, malaria in children ages 6-59 months, and anemia in women ages 15-49 and children ages 6-59 months.

The Sao Tome and Principe MICS 2014 is released by both UNICEF and the Demographic and Health Surveys Program.
