This is the first Multiple Indicator Monitoring Survey (MIMS), a customized version of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) round 3 which was conducted in Zimbabwe between April and May of 2009. The MIMS was designed to collect information on a large number of socio-economic and health indicators required to inform the planning, implementation and monitoring of national policies and programmes for enhancing the welfare of children and women. It included some additional sections on household expenditure, environment, and migration and excluded the MICS sections on child development and sexual behavior. The sampling frame was based on the 2002 Master Sample developed for the census. The sample of 10,752 households yielded interviews with 10,214 households and 8,903 women.
