The Nigeria Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2021 is part of MICS5, an international survey initiative to monitor the situation of children and women. MICS provides data for tracking progress toward Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For the 2021 Nigeria MICS, 38,806 women and 17,347 men ages 15-19 were successfully interviewed from 39,632 households. Additionally, 30,806 questionnaires for children under five, and 22,443 for children age 5-17 were completed. In a subsample of households, water quality testing was conducted for the presence of E. Coli. A supplemental sample of 337 clusters and 6,740 households was selected for the National Immunization Coverage Survey (NICS), for which only the household questionnaire and child immunization module of the questionnaire for children under 5 were administered in order to increase the combined sample of children and improve the level of precision for the immunization indicators.
