Kind of Data: Sample survey data [ssd]
Unit of Analysis: All children aged 0-59 months as well as women aged 15-49 years registered in UNHCR's database and living in one of the camps were eligible to participate in the survey.
Sampling Procedure: The survey was developed using the SMART methodology and UNHCR Standardised Expanded Nutrition Survey (SENS) guidelines for refugee populations. Simple random sampling was applied to generate the survey sample of children (0-59 months) and women of reproductive age (15-49 years) using the list of eligible subjects generated by UNHCR ProGres.

All children aged 0-59 months, women aged 15-49 years registered in UNHCR ProGres and living in the camps are eligible for inclusion in the survey population. UNHCR ProGres provided a list of all eligible women (n=1595) and children (n=498) within the population of 6656 by end of September 2018. The sample size was calculated using SMART methodology and ENA for SMART software. The sample size was calculated as to estimate the prevalence of GAM with a precision of 5 % and a Confidence Interval (CI) of 95%. Estimated prevalence of GAM of 5.8% was based on the results of the nutrition survey conducted in September 2014.The sample size was adjusted for a 10% non-response rate and due to the small population size (<10000), a correction factor was applied.
