The MICS Programme celebrates completing 300 surveys since its inception in 1995. The household survey programme has been working with countries to generate data on the situation of children and women for over two decades now, evolving over the years into the largest source of statistically sound and comparable data on children and women worldwide. Over the course of these 22 years, 109 countries have participated in MICS, resulting in 343 completed surveys and 109 surveys in the planning stage. Now in the sixth round of the household survey programme, most participating countries are returning members. Looking forward, MICS will continue to evolve to support countries and meet their needs in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and an ever-changing data landscape.
