MICS Sampling Option 1
USE AN EXISTING SAMPLE
Piggy-back MICS onto DHS or other survey if timely and feasible.
Or, use sample from a previous survey and re-interview households for MICS.
Or, use old survey sample EAs and construct new listing of households to select for MICS.
Old sample must be probability-based, national in scope.
Possibilities – DHS, other national health survey, recent labour force survey
Possibilities – DHS, other national health survey, recent labour force or household expenditure surveys
Important: design parameters must be known (such as selection probability, stratification, etc..)
