The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa [Pakistan] Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) was carried out during 2016-17 by Bureau of Statistics (BoS) Planning and Development Department Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) in collaboration with United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) . It was conducted as part of the 5th global round of MICS. Major funding was provided by the government of KP through Annual Development Programme. UNICEF provided technical support.
The global MICS programme was developed by UNICEF in the 1990s as international household survey programme to collect internationally comparable data on wide range of indicators on situation of children and women. MICS surveys measure key indicators that allow countries to generate data for use in polices and programmes, and to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and other internationally agreed up commitments. MICS is flexible to adjust country specific indicators to meet planning needs such as KP-MICS, 2016-17 also collected data on ‘safety net’.
The objective of this report is to facilitate dissemination and use of findings from the KP-MICS 2016-17. This is the final survey report which contains detailed information on all survey findings by various demographic, social, economic, and cultural characteristics.
