Kind of Data: Sample survey data [ssd]
Unit of Analysis: children 0-59 months women 15-49 years refugee households
Sampling Procedure: A systematic sampling technique without list was applied in this survey. UNHCR SENS guidelines for refugee populations (version2, 2013) and the Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transitions (SMART) methodology version 2 released on 11th January 2015 was used to plan the required sample size. ENA for SMART software was used for calculation of the minimum sample size required for each camp. Despite that weighted prevalence of GAM was 2.7% in the 2013 survey, the hit of EVD in Liberia was presumed to have negatively affected nutritional status of under-fives and hence, expected prevalence of acute malnutrition was elevated and set at 6% in all camps. During sample size calculation precision of 3% was desired, non-response and absentees was set at 10% bearing in mind of EVD outbreak in Liberia. Average household size and percentage of under-fives was considered from individual camp based on the 2013 nutrition survey. Correction for small population size was applied during sample size calculation given the population of under-fives is <10,000. More details available in the report.
