Socio-economic Situation of Palestine Refugees in the Gaza Strip
Crisis Monitoring Report – High Frequency Survey Results – December 2022
UNRWA has conducted the third round of its high frequency survey to monitor the socioeconomic situation of Palestine refugees in the Gaza Strip. As in the previous rounds, the survey sample was designed to provide representative estimates for a set of key indicators, such as poverty, consumption, food security, debts and remittances, housing, school attendance and employment.
A total of 800 households were randomly selected from UNRWA registration database. Data collection took place between 14 November and 13 December 2022 by 51 UNRWA relief workers. Out of the 800 selected households, 314 could not be reached or refused to be interviewed, yielding a final sample of 486 households.
The 486 interviewed households consist of 2,097 individuals, of whom 1,093 males and 1,004 females. About 47 per cent are under 19 years, 6 per cent are aged 60 years and above, and the remaining 47 per cent are in the age range 20-59 years.
