PDF File Size: 6.27 MB | Download   
The Nepal Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS 2014) was conducted by the Central Bureau of Statistics under the National Planning Commission from January to June 2014. Technical and financial support for the survey was provided by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Nepal. Nepal MICS 2014 provides valuable information and the latest evidence on the situation of children and women in Nepal before the country was hit by an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude on 25 April 2015. The survey presents data from an equity perspective by indicating disparities by sex, region, area, education, household wealth, and other characteristics. Nepal MICS 2014 is based on a sample of 12,405 households interviewed and provides a comprehensive picture of children and women in the 15 sub-regions of the country.Almost all (97 percent) newborns in Nepal were breastfed at some point after birth. However, only 49 percent started breastfeeding at the recommended time (i.e., within one hour of birth). Some 57 percent of infants under six months of age were exclusively breastfed and 75 percent received breast milk as the predominant source of nourishment during the day prior to the survey. Boys were more likely than girls to be exclusively breastfed. A cultural dimension partially explains this difference, as boys are usually introduced to semi-solid food at six months as compared to girls at five months.
