UNHCR-WFP Joint Assessment Mission in Maratane, 2020-2021
Other Household Survey [hh/oth]
The objectives of the UNHCR-WFP Joint Assessment Mission (JAM) 2021 were to: collect updated information on refugees’ and host communities’ capacities to meet their basic needs, their livelihood opportunities and challenges, and any related protection concerns, including the level of integration and social cohesion between the two groups; understand the current food security and nutrition situation of the refugees and host community; and describe the vulnerability characteristics of refugee households in the camp and those in the host community to inform programmatic decision-making.
The survey was designed to generate statistically representative findings for the refugee population residing in Maratane settlement and the Mozambican host community living east of the river Ruvuma within a 6 km radius from the centre of the settlement. In addition to the household survey, 16 focus group discussions (FGDs) and 7 key informant interviews were conducted both in-settlement refugees and the host community. Data collection of household survey took place between 20th August and 11th September, and FGDs and key informant interviews between 20th September and 15th October 2021.
The sample frame of the refugee household survey for Maratane settlement was UNHCR’s proGres database and was verified by the Instituto Nacional de Apoio aos Refugiados (INAR). The sample was drawn each in Maratane settlement and the host community at the 95 per cent of confidence level and 5 per cent considering non-response rates. In the settlement, the sample was stratified by sex of household heads. In total, 951 households completed interviews, 579 in the settlements and 372 in the host community.
This dataset is an anonymous version of the original data collected and processed by UNHCR and WFP.

Producers and sponsors
Stratified random sampling for population type persons of concern to UNHCR. Strata are based on zone (zona), head of household gender (sex_hhh) and head of household age (age_hhh_group). Random sampling for host populations.
Sample weights (`pweights`) were calculated using the inverse probability of selection, i.e. the size of the sample frame (N) divided by the sample size (n). Weights were calculated for each strata of the displaced population. Host populations are not weighted (i.e. pweight=1) due that there was not previous information on them.
