Brief Description


The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) was conducted in 2005 to monitor the situation of children and women in Montenegro. It was designed by UNICEF's Global MICS team. The Statistical Office of Montenegro (MONSTAT) in cooperation with the Strategic Marketing Research Agency implemented the survey. UNICEF provided financial and technical support. It is a nationally representative sample survey of households, women and children. The results cover the period October 2005 - January 2006, when the survey was conducted, and include data on domestic violence which represents responses to questions asked of women 15-49 years of age to assess their attitude towards whether husbands are justified to hit or beat their wives/partners in a variety of scenarios.
