The Pakistan - Gilgit-Baltistan Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2016-2017 was designed to provide estimates for the 3 divisions of Gilgit-Baltistan (Gilgit, Baltistan and Dimer,) as well as for the 10 districts of Gilgit-Baltistan. The survey 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 2016-2017 Gilgit-Baltistan MICS, 10,744 women age 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 6,213 households. Additionally, 6,637 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
