Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey- LAGOS (2016 - 2017)

The fifth round Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS5) was carried out in 2016/2017 by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) in collaboration with Lagos Bureau of Statistics (LBS), National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) and National Agency for the Control of Aids (NACA),as part of the global MICS programme. Technical support was provided by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). World Health Organization (WHO), World Bank, Save One Million Live (SOML), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, United Nations Population Funds (UNFPA) and UNICEF provided financial support.

The global MICS programme was developed by UNICEF in the 1990s as an international household survey programme to support countries in the collection of internationally comparable data on a wide range of indicators on the situation of children and women. MICS surveys measure key indicators that allow countries to generate data for use in policies and programmes, and to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other internationally agreed upon commitments. The Nigeria MICS5 provided opportunity for strengthening of national statistical capacity by providing technical guidance on data gathering, quality of survey information, statistical tracking and analysis. MICS5 will contributed to the improvement of data and monitoring systems in Nigeria and strengthened technical expertise in the design, implementation and analysis of such systems. In addition, MICS5 provided statistics to complement and assess the quality of data from recent national surveys such as Nigerian General Household Panel Survey (NGHPS) and National Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS) conducted by National Population Commission (NPopC).

As part of devolving the reporting domain to the lower level in Lagos State, sample was taken at the Senatorial district level in order to disaggregate the data at both state and senatorial district. In the history of MICS Nigeria, this is the first time the reporting domain is taking to senatorial level.
