Brief Description

This is the first Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) implemented in Kiribati. It generates information on women, men and children in the country based on the MICS framework with additional modules from the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS). The survey is named Kiribati Social Development Indicator Survey (KSDIS).

The Kiribati Social Development Indicators Survey 2018/19 collected data on domestic violence (DV) by including a series of questions that were developed for the domestic violence module of the Demographic and Health Surveys. The objective of the domestic violence module is to measure the prevalence of physical, sexual and emotional violence against women and girls who are, or ever were, married or even who are, or ever have been, living with a man in an intimate relationship. The module also measures the prevalence of physical or sexual violence by perpetrators who are not spouses or cohabiting partners among women, regardless if they have or have not ever been married, since they were 15 years of age.
