MICS 6 results presented to participants of the round table in Minsk

The results of the sixth round of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey to assess the situation of children and women in the Republic of Belarus (MICS 6) were presented by Belstat and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) on January 30, 2020 at a round table with representatives of government agencies, international and public organisations, the diplomatic corps, academia, various confessions and the mass media.

The survey was conducted in 2019 by Belstat specialists in the framework of the international technical assistance project with the financial support of the UNICEF, the European Union, the World Bank, the Government of the Russian Federation and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. It covered 9,000 Belarusian households, including 3,400 families with children under 5 years of age.

MICS is a global initiative of the UNICEF and is one of the largest international household survey programmes.

The survey results are valuable in making it possible to characterize the situation of children and women in recent years since previous MICS rounds (the third and fourth rounds were held in 2005 and 2012 respectively) and to track progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (data on 21 SDG indicators were obtained).
