NEW METHODOLOGICAL PAPER ON A MULTI-TOPIC FIELD TEST IN BELIZE

20 December 2019

This report provides a summary of the methods and findings of the field test conducted in Belize in 2019.

The Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) often tests new question modules and approaches to ensure that high quality tools are available to countries to monitor the situation of children and women. Since the launch of MICS6, methods to collect data on new topics have been refined by the international community. Further, new measurement approaches to certain topics pertinent to UNICEF such as anthropometric data collection and household air quality are taking place and warrant further study. MICS, working with UNICEF Belize and the Statistical Institute of Belize (SIB), implemented a field test of a number of new questions in two survey regions in Belize in April/May 2019. In this report, we provide details of the field test methodology, results and discuss implications of the results for MICS.
