    Since 1992, Kenya has been a generous host of refugees and asylum seekers, a population which today exceeds 500,000 people. The Kakuma Refugee Camps have long been among the largest hosting sites (about 40% of the total refugees in Kenya), and have become even larger in recent years, with an estimated 67 percent of the current refugee population arriving in the past five years. In 2015, UNHCR, the Government of Kenya, and partners established Kalobeyei Settlement, located 40 kilometers north of Kakuma, to reduce the population burden on the other camps and facilitate a shift towards an area-based development model that addresses the longer term prospects of both refugees and the host community. The refugee population makes up a significant share of the local population (an estimated 40 percent at the district level) and economy, engendering both positive and negative impacts on local Kenyans. While Kenya has emerged as a leader in measuring the impacts of forced displacement, refugees are not systematically included in the national household surveys that serve as the primary tools for measuring and monitoring poverty, labor markets and other welfare indicators at a country-wide level. As a result, comparison of poverty and vulnerability between refugees, host communities and nationals remains difficult. Initiated jointly by UNHCR and the World Bank, this survey replicates the preceding Kalobeyei SES (2018), designed to address these shortcomings and support the wider global vision laid out by the Global Refugee Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals. Data was collected in October 2019 to December 2019, covering about 2,122 households.

    At the end of 2015, Herat Province was among the highest IDP hosting provinces in Afghanistan, accounting for approximately 10% of the country's IDP population. In order to obtain reliable information on the socio-economic conditions of IDPs and returnees in Herat Province, a comprehensive sample survey was carried out among 11,264 households in the 5 most populated IDP/returnee settlements (Shagofan, Jebraiel, Maslakh, Now Abad and Kahdistan) in 2017.

    Afghanistan hosts a protracted population of Pakistani refugees, who fled North Waziristan Agency in 2014 as a result of a joint military offensive by Pakistani government forces against non-state armed groups. As of May 2017, UNHCR has biometrically registered over 50,000 refugees in Khost province and 36,000 refugees in Paktika province, where access remains a challenge. Over 16,000 of these refugees receive shelter and essential services in the Gulan camp in Khost province, while most of the others live among the host population in various urban and rural locations. To better understand the needs of the refugees and the host communities, UNHCR and WFP agreed to conduct a joint assessment of Pakistani refugees in Khost and Paktika. The data collection commenced in May 2017 and covered 2,638 refugee households (2,198 in Khost and 440 in Paktika).

    Kakuma Refugee Camp is one of the longest-standing humanitarian settlements in sub-Saharan Africa and one of the largest refugee camps in the world. In response to recent reductions in funding for the Kenyan refugee operation, increased global competition for funds, and a common belief that not all refugees in such protracted situations have the same humanitarian assistance needs, UNHCR and WFP decided to undertake a study among refugees in Kakuma Camp. The main aims were to fill knowledge gaps regarding refugee livelihoods and the level and differences of vulnerability in refugee households, as well as to explore the feasibility of delivering more differentiated assistance and to identify the mechanisms that would need to be put in place to do so. Specifically, the study was meant to determine whether a permanent targeting mechanism could be put in place or whether other ways of prioritising assistance exist when resources are tight. The survey covered 2,000 households and was implemented in November/December 2015.

    As a consequence of the armed conflict in the Gao, Kidal and Timbuktu regions of Mali, an estimated 32,000 Malian refugees have settled in Burkina Faso. Since 2012, UNHCR has been providing protection and assistance to these Malian refugees through multisectoral interventions. In order to assess the levels of vulnerability among these refugees and to identify potential opportunities for increasing their resilience, a quantitative survey was conducted among 6,775 Malian refugee households during April/May 2016.

    Due to persistent instability in the region, Cameroon hosts refugees and asylum seekers from neighboring countries, mainly from the Central African Republic and Nigeria. In 2015, nearly 259,000 Central African refugees arrived in Cameroon, of whom the vast majority settled in the Northern, Eastern and Adamaoua regions. Within these regions, the study identified 11 subsistence zones, of which the 5 zones with the highest refugee concentration were surveyed, in order to inform UNHCR's Livelihoods Strategy 2017-2020 targeting these refugees and to provide a baseline against which to measure the success of its implementation. The survey was conducted among 2,206 refugee households in November 2016.

    This survey was conducted to help UNHCR's Malawi office in its multi-year, multi-partnership planning and programming. The main objective was to provide an overview of the livelihood and vulnerability situation of refugees and host families in Malawi. The survey covered Dzaleka and Luwani refugee camps as well as households living in villages surrounding the two camps. Dzaleka camp is well established and has been in existence since 1994 and hosts households from a number of neighboring countries, including Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi and others. Luwani camp is relatively new and much smaller camp that hosts exclusively Mozambican asylum seekers whose status was not yet determined at the time of the survey. The survey covered 1,026 refugee households (802 in Dzaleka and 224 in Luwani) during March 2017.

    There is a growing interest in the consequences of hosting refugees for local populations. Such consequences need not to be unfavorable and in many instances the presence of refugees results in direct and indirect benefits for host communities. This survey was conducted to examine the influence of Congolese refugees on host communities in Rwanda, with a focus on labor market activity and economic welfare. The survey covered three refugee camps as well as their surrounding host communities. Data was collected in May 2016 and covers 427 refugee households and 953 host households.

    This assessment was carried out in Zimbabwe's Tongogara Refugee Camp. Its aim was to help UNHCR better understand refugees' and asylum seekers' living conditions and needs, which in turn will inform priority setting, programming and advocacy. The assessment was underpinned by the objectives of the "Graduation Approach" which targets support to the ultra-poor amongst the refugee population. A quantitative survey was conducted among 386 households during October 2017.

    The dataset presents number of registered refugees and asylum seekers in Kenya by age and sex from 2014 to 2018. The number of registered refugees declined by 3.4 per cent to 471,724 in 2018. This is attributed to the ongoing voluntary repatriation and resettlement. Adult refugee population marginally increased from 215,312 in 2017 to 216,547 in 2018 while child refugee population declined by 6.6 per cent to 255,177
