Swaziland multiple indicator cluster survey 2014: key findings
The Swaziland Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS5) was carried out in 2014 by the Central Statistical Office in collaboration with United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Population
Fund (UNFPA) and United Nations, Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), as part of the global MICS programme. Technical support was provided by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The government of Swaziland, UNFPA, UNESCO and UNICEF provided financial support.
The global MICS programme was developed by UNICEF in the 1990s as an international household survey programme to collect internationally comparable data on a wide range of indicators on the situation of children and women. MICS surveys measure key indicators that allow countries to generate data for use in policies and programmes, and to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other internationally agreed upon commitments.
The objective of this report is to facilitate the timely dissemination and use of results from the Swaziland Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) prior to the release of full tables and the final survey report that will contain detailed information on all survey findings by various demographic, social, economic and cultural characteristics. The final survey report is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2015.
Results presented in this report are not expected to change and are considered final. For more information on indicators and the analysis conducted in the full final report please go to mics.unicef.org.
