Indicators for Sample Size Determination

Sample size is different for each MICS indicator.

Must choose a key indicator, since only one sample size can be used in MICS.

Recommendations for choosing key indicator:

Choose from among main indicators of interest in your country.

Choose the one which will yield largest sample size.

Usually for a single-year age group, and

Usually DPT, measles, polio or tuberculosis immunization - or birth weight below 2.5 kg

Exceptions:  Do not choose infant or maternal mortality rates as the key indicators.  Do not choose a low coverage indicator that is desirably low (such as malnutrition prevalence).  Do not choose breast-feeding indicators for 4-month age groups.
