The Uruguay Multiple Cluster Indicator Survey (MICS) 2012-2013 is part of MICS4, 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), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. For the 2012-2013 Uruguay MICS, 2,753 women ages 15-49 were successfully interviewed from 3,568 households. Additionally, 1,599 questionnaires for children under 5 were completed.
