The Senegal Dakar Urban Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2015-2016 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 2015-2016 Senegal Dakar Urban MICS, 9,404 women and 3,802 men ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 4,948 households. Additionally, 9,332 questionnaires for children under five were completed by mothers/caretakers. The Senegal Dakar Urban MICS 2015-2016 was designed to produce estimates for the four urban departments of the Dakar region: Dakar, Pikine, Guédiawaye and Rufisque.
