Calculation of the Most Vulnerable Localities is based on the following datasets:
1 - Multi-Deprivation Index (MDI)
The MDI is a composite index, based on deprivation level scoring of households in five critical dimensions:
i - Access to Health services;
ii - Income levels;
iii - Access to Education services;
iv - Access to Water and Sanitation services;
v - Housing conditions;
MDI is from CAS, UNDP and MoSA Living Conditions and Household Budget Survey conducted in 2004.
2 - Lebanese population dataset
Lebanese population data is based on CDR 2002
3 - Refugee population figures
