Kind of Data: Sample survey data [ssd]
Unit of Analysis: All IDPs and returnees living in the five most populated IDP/returnee settlements of Afghanistan's Herat Province, namely Shagofan, Jebrael, Maslakh, Now Abad and Kahdistan.

UNHCR PPG: 3AFGA, 4AFGA
Sampling Procedure: The survey's objective was to deliver representative data of all IDPs and returnees living in the five most populated IDP/returnee settlements of Afghanistan's Herat Province, namely Shagofan, Jebrael, Maslakh, Now Abad and Kahdistan. The total population of IDPs/returnees in these settlements at the time of the survey was estimated at around 38,700 households.

For this survey a stratified, single-stage (i.e. non-clustered) sample design was applied. The five settlements were considered sampling strata. Within each of these strata, a sample of households was drawn systematically (based on alphabetic sort order) from the "list of inhabitants".

The total sample size was 11,264 IDP/returnee households.

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