2014 MICS Key Findings Report

The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) was carried out in 2014 by the Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency (ZIMSTAT) as part of the global MICS programme. The MICS was designed to collect information on a variety of socio-economic and health indicators required to inform the planning, implementation and monitoring of national policies and programmes for the enhancement of the welfare of women and children. The MICS plays a critical role in informing national policies such as the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (ZimASSET) October 2013 to December 2018.

This Key Findings Report covers indicators on child mortality, nutrition, breastfeeding and infant feeding, tetanus toxoid, malaria/fever, water and sanitation, reproductive health, maternal and new born health, child development, literacy and education, child protection, early marriage and polygyny, attitudes towards domestic violence, children’s living arrangements, sexual behaviour, male circumcision, access to Mass Media and Information, Communication Technology (ICT), and tobacco and alcohol use.
