Kind of Data: Sample survey data [ssd]
Unit of Analysis: Children 0-59 months Women 15-49 years Refugee households
Sampling Procedure: A cross-sectional survey was conducted using simple random sampling. Households were physically labelled with unique numbers per block. To reduce non-response rate and ensure results were representative of people living in the settlement at the time of the survey, empty households, as verified through neighbours were not be labelled and thus not be included in the sampling frame. A random household sample was drawn from the actual number of physically verified household before the survey

All the eligible household members were included in the survey; that is all children 6 to 59 months / (0-23 months for IYCF) and women 15 to 49 years in a sampled household. The interview was conducted in most cases with the mother in the household or in her absence with an adult member of the household who was knowledgeable with the everyday running of the household. The survey defined a household as the number of people who regularly stay together and eat from the same pot. 266 of the listed households of the 529 listed were surveyed. Each team was allocated a number of households. Block locations and boundaries was discussed during the training to ensure all teams knew where to go.

If a child was absent, the teams were instructed to revisit the household one more time. If they were unsuccessful after this, the child was recorded as absent and they were not replaced with another child. If the household refused to participate then it was considered a refusal and the household was 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 questionnaire was not administered, and the team moved to the next household.
