Methodology

The total number of People in Need was calculated by: a)breaking down the number of people in need per sector at county-level; b) identifying the highest sectoral people in need figure per county; and c) adding up the highest sector people in need figures per county to develop the total. This method of calculation minimizes the risk of duplication as it calculates the number of unique individuals in need, rather than double-counting across sectors. The number of People Targeted was calculated utilizing a similar method to the number of People in Need, namely by: a) breaking down the number of people targeted per sector at county-level; b) identifying the highest sectoral target caseload for each caseload; and c) adding up the highest sector caseload per county to develop the total. This minimizes the risks of duplication as it calculates the number of unique individuals to be targeted, rather than calculating across clusters.
