Methodology

Scope

The geographic scope of the analysis primarily focuses on the following locations (Administrative Level 1). The baseline population figures and corresponding people in need are disaggregated by township (administrative level 3), gender, age and disability. • Chin State • Kachin State • Kayin State • Rakhine State • Shan State

Population typology Within the geographic scope, the Humanitarian Country Team agreed that the following population groups to be considered for analysis in the 2020 Humanitarian Needs Overview. • Internally displaced persons (IDPs) • IDP returnee /resettled /locally integrated • Non-displaced stateless people in Rakhine • Other vulnerable crisis affected people

Calculation of baseline population figures

IDPs • The number of IDPs in Rakhine, Kachin and Shan states is provided by the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster. The IDP figures presented in the baseline population table are taken from the CCCM Cluster update as of 30 June 2019 for Rakhine and 31 July 2019 for Kachin and Shan. • The displacement figure for Laukkaing township, Shan State was provided by WFP as of August 2019. • The ‘new’ (since December 2018) displacement figures for Rakhine State (26,272 as of 25 August) and Chin State (1,087 as of 25 July) are from the displacement list shared by the Government. These new displacement figures were added to their corresponding townships under the IDP category. • The displacement figures for Kayin State were provided by UNHCR as of July 2019.

IDP returnee /resettled /locally integrated • Data on the number of returnees by township (except Laukkaing) was provided by UNHCR as of July 2019. • Returnee figures for Laukkaing, northern Shan was provided by WFP as of August 2019.

Non-displaced stateless people in Rakhine • Figures for non-displaced stateless people remaining in Rakhine State were provided by UNHCR. These are based on the best information available at the time of planning, noting limitations including lack of authorization to conduct assessments, inability to verify information independently, and other restrictions.

Other vulnerable crisis affected people • In the absence of multi-sector needs assessments, the InterCluster Coordination Group on 14 August 2019 agreed to use the methodology of 30 per cent (of population in conflict affected village tracts) to calculate the baseline population figures for “other vulnerable crisis affected people” as part of the overall population groups in the 2020 Humanitarian Needs Overview. Thirty per cent is a rounded figure based on children under 5 (14 per cent), pregnant and breast feeding women (7 per cent), elderly people over 65 (6.6 per cent) and people with disabilities (4.6 per cent) from the 2014 Census. The 2019 population growth rates were applied to respective states/regions (Kachin 1.83 per cent, Shan 1.51 per cent, Rakhine 0.49 per cent, Chin 1.06 per cent). The selection of village tracts varies with the local context in the selected geographic locations as follows. The 30 per cent approach was not used for townships with reliable data submitted by partners (such as northern Rakhine and Kong Kyan and Laukkaing townships in northern Shan). • Kachin State: This includes 30 per cent of local population in village tracts (excluding the main urban areas) that host IDP camps/sites. • Shan State (except Kong Kyan and Laukkaing): This includes 30 per cent of local population in village tracts (excluding the main urban areas) that host IDP camps/sites as well as a total of 20,763 people who were previously displaced between January to August 2019 due to renewed conflicts in Shan State. Figures for Kong Kyan and Laukkaing, northern Shan were provided by WFP as of August 2019. • Central Rakhine: This includes 30 per cent of the local population (non-Muslim) in village tracts (excluding the main urban areas) that host IDP camps (displacement since 2013) and recent displacement (since December 2018). It also includes 30 per cent of the local population (non-Muslim) in the village tracts with Muslim villages (excluding the main urban areas) in central Rakhine. • Northern Rakhine (Maungdaw, Rathedaung and Buthidaung): Figures were provided by the Maungdaw Inter-Agency Group led by UNHCR. • Chin State: This includes 30 per cent of local population in village tracts (excluding the main urban areas) that host new displacement (since December 2018).
