"MICS were originally conceived as a tool to measure a set of indicators for assessing progress towards the goals of the World Summit for Children set in 1990. Subsequently, the surveys have become an instrument to monitor the Millennium Declaration and its goals. MICS can be useful in determinng how many children have and do not have their rights fulfilled."--Page 9
