South Sudan - Lakes State, Awerial County: Population and shelters density in the established site of Mingkaman informal settlement (18 January 2016)


The Kernel density algorithm has been used to create the maps of population and shelters density in the established site of Mingkaman. Regarding the population density,this technique combines density of occupied shelters and is weighted by the number of households members in December 2015, while the shelters density only uses the location of the shelters.

624 shelters assumed as residential shelters were not assessed due to being vacant at the time of assessment.They have been assigned the average population per shelter of their subsection.The average population per shelter for each subsection of the camp is calculated as follows: total population of the subsection / total residential shelters of the subsection.
