The Guinea Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 1996 is part of MICS1, 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 1996 Guinea MICS, 5,076 women were successfully interviewed from 5,145 households. Additionally, the survey collected information on 18,950 children under 15.
