Between June and September 2021, a group of internally displaced persons (IDPs) were evicted from pastoral sites in Batangafo, Ouham prefecture, Central African Republic. They eventually settled in Bambari, Ouaka prefecture. UNHCR in partnership with ACTED, IOM, INTERSOS and PARET undertook a study of the intentions of the IDPs to return to their place of origin. The study took place from 8 to 13 September, and included all 1,670 IDP households or 8,134 individuals living in Bambari. This data is an anonymous version of the original data. A 20% sample of the original data, representing 335 households or 1,659 individuals, was drawn before the data were anonymized for public distribution.

The survey was a complete enumeration. The anonymous version published on the Microdata Library is a 20% sample of original data, stratified by prefecture of origin (origine_prefecture).
While the sample was proportionally taken from each strata, the weights vary slightly. Raw survey weights are included in the dataset (see survey_weight), and were calculating by diving the total number of households in the sample frame by the size of the sample.
