Kind of Data: Sample survey data [ssd]
Unit of Analysis: Children 0-59 months Women 15-49 years Refugee households
Sampling Procedure: An exhaustive survey was conducted as the total refugee population size of Gorom camp was below 2,500 people rendering sampling unnecessary. All children 6-59 months/ (0-23 months for IYCF) in the camp were surveyed. All the households were included for the anthropometry, anaemia and IYCF modules. For the women questionnaire and the food security modules, half of the households were sampled.

The surveys were undertaken by six teams composed of four members each (one team leader, one haemoglobin measurer, one anthropometric measurer/translator and one anthropometric/haemoglobin measurement assistant). Each team was allocated the villages to survey. Village locations and boundaries was discussed during the training to ensure all teams knew where to go. If an individual or an entire household was absent the teams were instructed to return to the household or revisit the absent individual on the same or the next survey day. If they were unsuccessful after this, the individual or the household was recorded as absent and they were not replaced with another individual. If the individual or an entire household refused to participate then it was considered a refusal and the individual or the household were not replaced with another. If a selected child was living with a disability or a physical deformity preventing certain anthropometric measurements the child was still included in the assessment of the other indicators If it was determined that a selected household did not have any eligible children, the other relevant questionnaires were administered to the household (anaemia measurement for women and food security)
