The sample for the 2019 Turkmenistan MICS 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 6 regions: Ashgabat city, Akhal, Balkan, Dashoguz, Lebap and Mary velayats. The urban and rural areas within each region were identified as the main sampling strata and the sample of households was selected in two stages.

Four questionnaires were used in the survey: 1) a household questionnaire to collect basic demographic information on all de jure household members, the household, and the dwelling; 2) a questionnaire for individual women administered in each household to all women age 15-49 years; 3) an under-5 questionnaire, administered to mothers (or caretakers); and 4) a questionnaire for children age 5-17 years, administered to the mother (or caretaker) of one randomly selected child age 5-17 years living in the household.
