Overview of position

Purpose of activity / assignment: 

  • This individual consultancy will help government implement the planning stage of the South Sudan Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey Round 7 (MICS7). The main activities of the planning stage include overall coordination, creation of partnerships, development of workplans & budgets, resource mobilization & coordinating the design processes of a sampling strategy & sample frame for the South Sudan MICS7.

Background & rationale:

  • Our client in South Sudan (SSCO) is implementing a 3 year country program. The 2023 - 2025 organization’s South Sudan (SSCO) program supports the rights of children & women (particularly the most vulnerable) & further strengthens systems & promotes access to high quality & resilient services. The humanitarian component of the program seeks to ensure assistance & development cooperation address the structural causes of fragility & vulnerability. South Sudan’s 2023 / 2025 country program is thus an adaptation of the organization global program structure; beside the social protection & public finance for children outputs, the current SSCO social policy program component also covers child poverty.

  • Child poverty is an output in the social policy section. The SSCO child poverty portfolio aims to enhance the capacity of government across all levels to measure & monitor child vulnerability & use the evidence to design appropriate policies, plans & budgets. The portfolio contributes to the overall result of the section which seeks to ensure more children & families benefit from better government services that reduce monetary & multi dimensional poverty thereby strengthen resilience. In 2023, the SSCO child poverty portfolio covers child poverty & general vulnerability, with focus on production of reports & high level publications on child poverty & vulnerabilities, evidence generation, including implementation of Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey, Round 7 (MICS7) & analysis & advocacy work to inform child poverty & vulnerability.

  • South Sudan has largely implemented MICS surveys. It participated in the in 1995 round of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) & generated data on key indicators on the well being of children & women that informed policies & programs at all levels of government. The survey was implemented in partnership & collaboration with government & key stakeholders including UN agencies. Thereafter 6 rounds of MICS have been implemented globally in 118 countries. 17 countries in the Eastern & Southern Africa Region (ESAR) have participated in at least 1 round of MICS & 12 countries in the region have participated in multiple rounds of the survey, providing insights on trends for many of those indicators. The survey has continuously evolved to respond to changing data needs, expanding from 28 indicators in the 1st round to 177 indicators in the 6th round (MICS6), thereby became acritical source of high quality data on the well being of children & women; MICS6 is now followed by MICS7 & was in March 2023.

  • MICS 7 presents a unique opportunity to generate more relevant statistics on child rights & wellbeing across various domains including domestic violence against women, anthropometry for children aged 5 - 9 years, children’s time use, adolescent mental health & food insecurity. MICS7 surveys will generate data on 40 SDG indicators half of all SDG indicators that can be sourced from household surveys. MICS7 features new topics & initiatives including longitudinal phone surveys (MICS plus), geocoding, integration with administrative data sources, amongst others. The questionnaire architecture of MICS7 is shorter & covers households, women, men, under 5s & children aged 5 - 17. MICS7 dataset covers maternal & newborn health, education, water & sanitation, energy use & social transfers. MICS7 will address the current data needs of across all levels of governments, strengthen the national statistical capacity & update the situation of children and women. After long absence from the program, South Sudan is participating in MICS 7. The National Bureau of Statistics in collaboration with relevant partners will implement MICS 7 in South Sudan.
