JDC Support to Integrating forcibly displaced populations into COVID-19 High Frequency Phone Surveys

In coordination with the COVID-19 High Frequency Phone Survey  work by the World Bank and its partners, the Joint Data Center is supporting the expansion of those efforts to include data collection on forcibly displaced populations in several countries including Burkina Faso, Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Iraq, and Jordan. The JDC is also supporting the analysis of similar data in Bangladesh and Yemen. With the help of these High Frequency phone Surveys, we can provide insights on the socioeconomic experience of forcibly displaced populations and their hosts during COVID-19. For an example of such insights, see the second issue of the JDC Working Paper Series on the welfare of Forced Displacement titled Answering the Call: Forcibly Displaced Populations During The Pandemic.
