The Guinea-Bissau Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey 2018-2019 is part of MICS6, an international survey initiative to monitor the situation of children and women. Interviews include: 7,379 households; 10,945 women ages 15-49 years; 7,484 mothers/caregivers of children under five; 5,836 mothers/caregivers of children ages 5-17; and 2,805 men. Households were also tested for water quality (1,828).

MICS used a two-stage stratified sampling method. The sampling base was based on the 2009 General Population and Housing Census (RGPH). Primary sampling units selected in the first stage were the enumeration zones (Districts of the Census) of the Census. A list of households has been drawn up in each Primary Unit of the sample and a sample of Households was selected in the second stage (Secondary Units).
