The #DPRK Multi Indcator Cluster Survey #MICS for 2017 by @UNICEF is out. 8500 Households in all 9 provinces including #Jagangprovince (normally closed to #NGOs) and #Pyongyang with 24 hour notification period prior to survey. #NorthKorea Urban (61%) and Rural (39%) households. Validation by forced re-interviews on one randomly selected household per cluster. Carried out with #DPRK Central Bureau of Statistics. Numbers are credible and match closely with other surveys (at least for childhood mortality rates)
