Questionnaires

Overview

The questionnaires for the Georgia MICS were structured questionnaires based on the MICS3 Model Questionnaire with some modifications and additions. 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, child discipline, disability, and salt iodization.

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 includes child mortality, maternal and newborn health, marriage and union, contraception, attitudes towards domestic violence, HIV knowledge, cigarette smoking, and hemoglobin test.

The children's questionnaire includes birth registration and early learning, child development, breastfeeding, care of illness, immunization*, and anthropometry.

The questionnaires are based on the MICS3 model questionnaire.  From the MICS3 model English and Russian versions, the questionnaires were translated into Georgian and were pre-tested in Tbilisi and in Mtskheta-Mtianeti during September 2005.  Based on the results of the pre-test, modifications were made to the wording and translation of the questionnaires.   


*The immunization levels were based primarily on recall and it appeared that the respondents' reporting of the immunizations received and, in particular, the number of doses was under reported. As a result, it was decided that the immunization levels are not reported because of the strong potential for biased estimates.
