Summary 

The Turkmenistan Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2015-2016 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) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. For the 2015-2016 Turkmenistan MICS, 7,618 women were successfully interviewed from 5,861 households. Additionally, 3,765 questionnaires for children under five were completed. For children under two, vaccination information was collected from immunization records at health facilities. Men were not included in the survey.
