Post-Distribution Monitoring of Non-Food Items, 2022
Income/Expenditure/Household Survey [hh/ies]
More than 900,000 Rohingya refugees are living in extremely congested camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Since their arrival in Bangladesh, they have been dependent on humanitarian aid for their survival, including food, core-relief items, shelter and other basic services. From January to August 2022, UNHCR distributed Core Relief Item kits to newly arrived refugee families. Each such kit includes tarpaulins for shelter construction, a kitchen set, blanket, jerry can, bucket, sleeping mat and solar lamp. UNHCR conducts Post Distribution Monitoring (PDM) to collect refugees’ feedback on the quality, sufficiency, utilization, and effectiveness of the assistance provided, which helps improve and adapt the services as per the refugees’ needs. UNHCR undertook a PDM to monitor this programme in Bangladesh in November 2022. The PDM involved a mixed-methodology, incorporating both qualitative and quantitative methods. This data is the anonymous version of the qualitative data collected using a structured household-level questionnaire.

UNHCR generated samples for each camp based on their records of households having access to NFI distributions in 2022. The samples are stratified at camp level, achieving a 95% confidence level and 10% margin of eror; when all camps are aggregated the margin of error is less than 3%. Each camp was sampled with a 30% buffer of eligible households, to account for non-response or inelgible households. The shelter post-distribution monitoring survey will consist of a minimum of 1451 surveys, while the NFI PDM survey will consist of a minimum of 1606 surveys.
Design weights were assigned based on probability of selction per camp.
