The UNHCR Results Monitoring Survey (RMS) is a household-level survey covering people who are directly or indirectly assisted by UNHCR, including refugees and asylum seekers, internally displaced persons, returnees, stateless and others of concern. Additionally, in the Republic of Korea the survey covered rejected Asylum-Seekers. The objective of the survey is to monitor impact and outcome level indicators on education, healthcare, livelihoods, protection concerns, shelter, and water and sanitation. The results contribute to an evidence base for reporting against UNHCR’s multi-year strategies to key stakeholders.
The RMS can be implemented in any operational context. A standard structured questionnaire has been developed for the RMS, which can be conducted as a stand-alone survey or flexibly integrated with other data collection exercises. The questionnaire was adapted to the Korean context and programme objectives by removing, e.g. questions related to camp settings. Questions related to the rejected asylum seekers in need of protection and family members abroad were added. The data includes indicators collected at both the household and individual (household-member) level. The survey covered 424 household amounting to 950 individuals.
