Methodology in this country

The first round of data from Bangladesh was collected from 1,003 Rohingya refugees in 23 collective sites in the Ukhia and Teknaf subdistricts of Cox’s Bazar in July 2018 using a random sampling approach. The sampling strategy was to target at least 30 people per camp, as well as a gender split of roughly 50:50.

For the second round of data collection in October 2018, 943 Rohingya at the same collective sites as in the first round and 451 host community members were sampled.

The surveys with Rohingya refugees were conducted face-to-face by trained IOM Needs and Population Monitoring enumerators who speak Bengali and Chittagong, and who received Rohingya language training from Translators without Borders. The host community members were surveyed by enumerators from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society.

The risk of oversampled groups skewing the results was evaluated by calculating weighted means based on the proportion of each region in the target population. These weighted means did not differ from the raw means by more than one decimal point, suggesting that any bias introduced by the oversampling was negligible.

Data disaggregated by camp, gender, age, gender of household, date of arrival, and disability is available.
