Chairperson of the Committee on Human Rights and Freedoms to take part in the press conference on the MICS findings

Chairperson of the Committee on Human Rights and Freedoms Mr Halil Duković will take part in the press conference on the presentation of key findings of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) which was carried out in 2018 by the Statistical Office of Montenegro, with the technical assistance provided by UNICEF, and financial support of the government of Montenegro, UNICEF, and UNHCR.

The introductory remarks will be given by the Head of the UNICEF Representative Office to Montenegro Mr Osama Makkawi Khogali and Deputy Prime Minister of Montenegro for economic policy and financial system Mr Milutin Simović, while the director of the Statistical Office of Montenegro Ms Gordana Radojević will present the key findings of the Survey.

After the census, this is the biggest survey which, with the UNICEF support, is being carried out worldwide every five years, aimed at collecting statistically reliable and internationally comparable data on children and families. The survey collects information on households, women and men ages 15 to 49, and children younger than 5 and children 5-18. 

This survey provides data for Montenegro on 199 indicators relating to the lives of children and families in our country and 20 indicators of SDGs for general and Roma population in the field of health, education, social care, environmental protection, living conditions and welfare.  The obtained data are used to assess Montenegro’s progress in achieving the SDGs, implementing the UN conventions, as well as the country’s progress in the EU accession and meeting of other internationally accepted obligations.

The conference will be held in the UN Eco House, on Friday 28 June 2019 at 12h.
