Methodology in this country

The first rounds of data in Iraq were collected in April and July/August of 2017 as part of a project under the Mixed Migration Platform. The first round of interviews was conducted with 678 people in camps and urban settings in northern Iraq, of which 339 were Syrian refugees and 339 were IDPs. Four different locations across northern Iraq were selected, in which surveys were conducted both in camps, in Domiz and Kawergosk, and in non-camp urban settings, in Dohuk and Erbil. The second round of interviews was conducted with 259 refugees and 282 IDPs, also in northern Iraq.

Subsequent rounds of data collection in Iraq were conducted as part of our project tracking the Grand Bargain. Data was collected between July and September 2017 with 849 individuals across 11 governorates, targeting Internally Displaced Persons, returned IDPs and refugees. In November/December 2018 the second round of data collection for the Grand Bargain project comprised 704 interviews, which were conducted across 19 locations in the governorates of Anbar, Erbil and Ninewa, reducing the number of governorates as compared to 2017. These three governorates were selected based on the following calculus: Erbil hosts just over 50% of all refugees and 10% of IDPs in Iraq; of the total returnee and IDP population in Iraq, 31% and 39% currently reside in Ninewa, respectively, making it the governorate with the highest number of both sub-groups; returnees were also targeted in Anbar as it currently hosts a further 31% of all returnees in Iraq. Specific locations were selected based on a convenience sample devised in consultation with humanitarian organisations and our data collection partner in-country.

Data disaggregated by governorate, status, gender, age, household size, dependents under the age of 18, country of origin, awareness of complaint mechanisms, access to employment, and disability is available.
