Summary 

The Swaziland 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 Swaziland MICS, 4,762 women ages 15-49 and 1,459 men ages 15-59 were successfully interviewed from 4,865 households. Additionally, 2,728 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
