Multi-Sectoral Needs Assessment - Libya


Collect a reliable multi-sectoral data from representative sampling households in many cities from libya. The survey aims to obtain socio-economic information; demographic and economic characteristics, living conditions, access to main services, living in security, and availability of food and non-food items for both Internally Displaced and Non-Displaced population Persons , and returnees.


The Libyan Multi-Sectoral Household survey was carried out on a sample estimated at approximately 7,200 households, of which approximately 1,650 were displaced and 5,500 of the non-displaced household. The assessment included 20 municipalities The sample is estimated at approximately 24,000 individuals. Methodology was based on two-stage stratified sampling methodIn Household survey we proceeded by two stage sampling design; the first stage consists of primary units PU’s selection. The second stage focus on the cluster selection. Stratification generally decreases sampling variance, while the within-cluster homogeneity measure and the cluster size increase it. Hence, the objective in sample design is to choose cluster size so as to balance homogeneity, for which a smaller size is statistically more efficient and with cost for which a larger cluster size is usually better. So in this survey what suggested is to enumerate a cluster of 10 households, in each enumeration area, taken systematically after numbering all households in the EA. The first household should be taken randomly from 1 to the calculated statistic interval I.
