Fact sheet - Family Counting (As of 5 December 2017)
UNHCR launched the Family Counting exercise on 4 October 2017. A team of over 100 staff is collecting information on refugee families and issuing them a card with a unique identifier, the Family Counting Number. The family counting helps to identify vulnerabilities and specific needs among the refugee population and to harmonize assistance. It will also be a useful baseline data for site planning, for instance on density per locations.
