Questionnaires

Overview

The questionnaires for the Belarus MICS were structured questionnaires based on the MICS3 Model Questionnaire. A household questionnaire was administered in each household, which collected various information on household members including sex, age, relationship, and orphanhood status. The household questionnaire includes household listing, education, water and sanitation, household characteristics, child labour, and child discipline.

In addition to a household questionnaire, questionnaires were administered in each household for women age 15-49 and children under age five. For children, the questionnaire was administered to the mother or caretaker of the child. 

The women's questionnaire include women's characteristics, child mortality, maternal and newborn health, marriage/union, contraception, and HIV/AIDS.

The children's questionnaire includes children's characteristics, early learning, breastfeeding, care of Illness, immunization and anthropometry.

The questionnaires were developed in English from the MICS3 Model Questionnaires, and were translated into Russian.  After an initial review the questionnaires were translated back into English by an independent translator with no prior knowledge of the survey.  The back translation from the Russian version was independently reviewed and compared to the English original.  Differences in translation were reviewed and resolved in collaboration with the original translators.

The Russian questionnaires were both piloted as part of the survey pretest.

All questionnaires and modules are provided as external resources.
