NEW YORK, USA, 7 April 2010 Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS) are in full swing. The fourth round of the programme began its rollout in 2009, and countries around the world are gearing up to collect invaluable MICS data about the situation of children and women.

UNICEF developed MICS in the mid-1990s to help countries produce statistically sound, internationally comparable data across a range of indicators, including health, education, child protection and HIV/AIDS. To date, more than 200 surveys have been carried out in around 100 countries.

"The MICS surveys evolved from being a relatively simple tool for monitoring progress toward the World Summit for Children goals and targets to becoming one of the most important sources of data for tracking progress toward the Millennium Development Goals as well as other major international commitments for improving the lives of women and children worldwide," said UNICEFs Chief of Statistics and Monitoring and Associate Director of the Division of Policy and Practice, Tessa Wardlaw.
