This 220-page report is the first volume of the full technical report of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) 2009. This volume includes data on 23 indicators relating to child protection, education, health and water and sanitation, down to district level. The MICS survey, known as Progotir Pathey, is a UNICEF-developed household survey which fills data gaps for monitoring human development, particularly regarding the situation of children and women. With technical support from UNICEF, Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) conducted the 2009 survey among 300,000 households. The 2009 MICS used a much larger sample size than previous MICS, and is the first time that data has been collected at upazila (sub-district) level. It is the only multi-sectoral household survey providing disaggregated data on a large number of socio-economic indicators.
