Part of MICS2, the Afghanistan Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey 2000 was designed to provide estimates of health, nutrition, water, environmental sanitation, and other topics at the national level, for both urban and rural areas, and at a regional level that includes seven regions defined in the survey design: Central, Eastern, North-Eastern, South-Eastern, Western, Southern, and Northern. The survey used three questionnaires:

  •  A household questionnaire that included questions on education, child labor, water and sanitation, and salt iodization.
  •  An individual women’s questionnaire for only married women age 12-49 that included questions on child mortality, tetanus toxoid vaccination, and contraceptive use.
  •  A questionnaire for children under five that contained modules on birth certificates, vitamin A, breastfeeding, night blindness, and anthropometry.
