Iraq – High Frequency Phone Survey (IHFPS) to Monitor Impacts of COVID-19
This JDC supported report presents results from socioeconomic observational data collected by phone in four rounds from October 2020 through January 2021 focusing extensively on the Internally Displaced People (IDPs)
and returnees (here referring solely to returning IDPs). The first part of the paper presents trends on key socioeconomic indicators from the nationally representative sample of households that had been interviewed monthly since August 2020. The second part of the report concentrates on an expanded sample of forcibly displaced households from the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) and the North region and its comparison with nondisplaced households from these regions that form part of the regular national sample. In total, this report
conveys data from nearly 15,000 interviews.
