Disaggregation
Data collection
through MICS is a
primary source of
disaggregated data
MICS provides data for
more than 100 indicators
which can be
disaggregated by:
• geozones
• residence (urban, urbanpoor, rural)
• gender
• education
• age
• wealth
• ethnicity/religion/language
• other stratifiers
• combinations of the above

Impressions
• Increased sample sizes, increased cost
• Improvements in length and content of training,
sampling, data processing
• Target of publication of final report 12 months after
fieldwork not met in some countries
• Major bottlenecks: Simultaneous data entry, data
processing/editing/tabulations, sampling
• Overall improvements in data quality
