The first session of the Learning from the Evidence on Forced Displacement training program focuses on the use of socioeconomic data.
This module highlights how socioeconomic data and evidence can be crucial in informing policies and programming. Using examples from different countries affected by forced displacement, instructors will guide the audience in learning about what type of data is collected to assess the socioeconomic status of refugees, internally displaced populations (IDPs) and stateless people, and their host communities. Participants will explore how evidence can be created from this data and the important link between this evidence and policy decisions.
The module will provide an introduction to the different methodologies for the analysis of socioeconomic data. No prior knowledge of statistical and data analysis methods is required to attend this module.
