The Guinea-Bissau Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 1996 is part of round 1 of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) series, an international survey initiative to monitor the situation of children and women. Topics covered in the MICS are intended to provide data that can be used to assess progress towards mid-decade goals defined at the United Nations 1990 World Summit for Children. For the 1996 Guinea-Bissau MICS, data was gathered from household interviews of women of reproductive age and caretakers of children.
