Area-Based Assessment of Refugees and Host Communities - 2022
Other Household Survey [hh/oth]
In order to provide an overview of the humanitarian situation of refugees from Ukraine and host communities in the Slovak Republic, UNHCR in partnership with REACH Impact Initiatives conducted an area based assessment in the cities of Bratislava, Kosice, Nitra and Zilina in between October and December 2022. The objective of the assessment was to complement the multi-sector needs assessment conducted in August 2022 (https://microdata.unhcr.org/index.php/catalog/778) and to better inform an area-based response by the local authorities and humanitarian actors. The specific focus of the assessment was to identify priority needs of the refugee population in terms of access to basic services, social cohesion between refugees as well as host population, and local refugee response mechanisms.
The assessment used a mixed-methods approach, including data from secondary sources as well as primary qualitative and quantitative data. For the primary quantitative component, a set of structured household questionnaires were used: one for refugees and one for host households. The four geographic areas were decided as they were hosting the largest number of refugees at the time of the assessment. Temporary protection data was used to get an estimate of the refugees in the four cities assessed. Purposive sampling was used, therefor the results can only be considered as indicative and are not representative of the whole population of interest. See further details on the methodology in the report.
This data is an anonymous version of the original data collected and used for the primary analysis.
