Kind of Data: Sample survey data [ssd]
Unit of Analysis: All Pakistani refugees living in Afghanistan's Khost and Paktika provinces.

Sampling Procedure: The survey's objective was to deliver representative data of all Pakistani refugees living in Afghanistan's Khost and Paktika provinces. The total population of Pakistani refugees in these provinces at the time of the survey was estimated at around 18,000 households.

For this survey a stratified, two-stage (i.e. clustered) sample design was applied. The 10 refugee-hosting districts of Khost and Paktika were considered sampling strata, but within these the refugee-dense locations of Gulan camp and Lakan (in Maton district) were considered separate strata, resulting in 12 sampling strata overall. Within each of these strata, first a selection of villages was drawn with probability-proportional-to-size, then second a selection of households was drawn from UNHCR's registration database.

The total sample size was 2,638 refugee households.

NB: The original data collection also included a small number of households from the neighbouring host communities; however, these observations were dropped from the public-release version of the dataset.
Data Collection Mode: Face-to-face [f2f]
