The Guinea-Bissau Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS5) was conducted in 2014 by the National Statistical Institute (INE) as part of the Global MICS Programme. The survey was conducted nationwide, based on a sample of 6,820 households, distributed evenly across the 8 regions of the country: Tombali, Quinara, Gabu, Bafatá, Oio, Biombo, Cacheu and Bolama/Bijagós as well as a slightly larger sample for the Autonomous Sector of Bissau (SAB).
Data were collected on the following topics: child mortality, nutrition,child health, water and sanitation, reproductive health, child development, literacy and education, child protection, HIV/AIDS and sexual behaviour, access to mass media and use of ICT, subjective well-being and tobacco and alcohol use.
The Key Findings Report, released following the fieldwork completion, will be updated shortly.
