The Mexico Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2015 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 Mexico MICS, 12,110 women ages 15-49 and 11,607 individuals ages 5-17 were successfully interviewed from 10,760 households. Additionally, 8,066 questionnaires for children under five were completed by mothers or primary caretakers.
