Far North Joint Assessment of Nigerian Refugees, October 2021
Other Household Survey [hh/oth]
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugess (UNHCR) and World Food Programme (WFP) conducted a joint assessment mission (JAM) of Nigerian refugees in the Far North of Cameroon between October 7 and 19, 2021. The objective of the assessment was to collect updated information on basic needs, shelter, food security, nutrition, water and sanitation, education, protection, security, common services, and livelihoods of Nigerian refugees to inform improved humanitarian assistance.
Assessment data was collected at three levels: household, children under five and women of child-bearing age. Stratified random sampling was used to collect the data, with two main strata: 1) Nigerian refugees in the Minawao camp and 2) Nigerian refugees outside of camps. The second strata was further divided into strata by department: Diamaré, Logone-et-Chari, Mayo-Sava, Mayo-Tsanaga. Raw survey weights were calculated by dividing the size of the sample frame by the sample size per strata. The published data on the MDL are an anonymous version of the original data.

Stratified two-stage cluster sampling. The two main strata are refugees in camps (Minawao) and refugees outside of camps (Diamaré,Logone-et-Chari,Mayo-Sava, and Mayo-Tsanaga departments). Probability proportional to size (PPS) was used to select the clusters within the strata.
Sample weights were calculated at the household level (survey_weight) for each strata by diving the total of the sample frame (N) but the sample size (n).
