Kind of Data: Sample survey data [ssd]
Unit of Analysis: children 0-59 months women 15-49 years refugee households
Sampling Procedure: The UNHCR SENS guidelines for refugee populations and the Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transitions (SMART) methodology version 2 were used to calculate the required sample size. Information on nutritional status obtained from the 2012 nutrition survey was used for sample size estimation. The systematic random sampling methodology without list was used during sample size estimation since in each block households are well arranged in rows and columns. From the 2012 survey, the upper limit of the global acute malnutrition according to WHO 2006 growth standards was 5.4%, which for the purpose of the 2013 survey the figure was rounded to 6% and assumed as an expected prevalence of acute malnutrition. Precision of 3% was desired and 10% to take care of non-response and absentees. The non-response rate was taken across in all camps due to the fact that the mobility among refugees in the amps is very high. The under-five population was below 10,000 and thus the need for adjustment to small population. Based on November 2013's ProGres data, the estimated sample size was automatically generated from emergency nutrition assessment (ENA) software. More details available in the report.
