The sample for the Tonga MICS 2019 was designed to provide estimates for a large number of indicators on the situation of children and women at the national level, for urban and rural areas, and for divisions: Tongatapu, Vava’u, Ha’apai, ‘Eua and Ongo Niua. The urban and rural areas were identified as the main sampling strata and the sample of households was selected in two stages. Within each stratum, a specified number of census enumeration areas were selected systematically with probability proportional to size. After a household listing was carried out within the selected enumeration areas, a systematic sample of 20 households was drawn.

All of the selected enumeration areas were visited during the fieldwork data collection. The sampling frame was based on the 2016 Tonga Census of Population and Housing. It was calculated that 139 sample clusters would need to be selected in total.
