Needs and Population Monitoring (NPM) Bangladesh Round 10 Site Assessment


The NPM Site Assessment (SA) collects information about the overall Rohingya population, including refugees who arrived before 25 August 2017. It does not collect information on the entire Rohingya population in Bangladesh, but in Cox’s Bazar district only. The NPM SA covers all sites where Rohingya refugees have been identified irrespective of the location type, including makeshifts settlements, spontaneous settlements, host communities, and formal refugee camps.


Information is collected by a team enumerators through field level key informant (KI) interviews using a closed-ended KoBo questionnaire. Enumerators are locally recruited and thus able to conduct interviews in Bengali, Rohingya, and Chittagonian. The latter, Chittagonian Bangla, is highly similar to the Rohingya language. The findings of the KI interviews are triangulated at the field level through direct observations, and spontaneous community group discussions. Not planned ahead, these group discussions are a product of the interest paid to KI interviews conducted in the field and are an important element in giving a voice to the local population and identifying their opinions concerning needs and vulnerabilities. On average, during a two week data collection period a single round of the NPM SA collects approximately 1900 interviews with individual KIs.
