The 2019-2020 MICS6 Pakistan - Balochistan survey was designed to provide information for policy initiatives to support children and women's well-being. Its objectives included providing high quality data for assessing the situtation of children, adolescents, women, and households, collect disaggregated data for identification of disparities, to generate data on national and global SDG indicators, and generate behavioral and attitudinal data not available from other data sources.
