New North Korean household data: What does it reveal?

Report is "most thorough and wide-ranging" ever conducted in DPRK on women and children: UNICEF

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) announced on Wednesday that the North Korean government has released wide-ranging data collected from its citizens in 2017 by the state’s Central Bureau of Statistics.

The data was collected using a Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) of 8,500 households. There have been three previous MICS conducted in-country with the last to occur in 2009.
