This report presents a summary of preliminary findings from the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), conducted in 2008 by the National Statistics Institute (INE), with support from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The 2008 MICS Mozambique is a national level multi-purpose household survey. It provides up-to-date data for assessing the situation of women and children in Mozambique. Data from MICS also provide the information needed to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the targets of the ‘World Fit for Children’, as well as other internationally-agreed targets. The MICS provides data on 17 MDG indicators, offering the largest up-to-date single source of data for MDG monitoring in the country. Furthermore, the availability of data on children and women from the MICS is expected to enhance the understanding of policy makers, analysts, programme managers and all stakeholders about pertinent issues on population and health. At the same time, the MICS data feeds into the ongoing evaluation of the 2007-2009 National Action Plan for the Reduction of Absolute Poverty (PARPA II), allowing an analysis of progress against a number of targets in the PARPAII monitoring matrix. The MICS data will also be a key source informing the development of the next Government medium-term strategic plan. [authors abstract]
