Cash Suitability Assessment for Food Assistance in Konduga - Households: Borno State, Nigeria December 2017



This factsheet presents findings from an assessment aimed at identifying the most appropriate food assistance modality in the town of Konduga in Borno State in northeastern Nigeria. The assessment was conducted by REACH in coordination with the Food Security Sector. Between 16-22 November 2017, 447 household surveys were conducted, with the population divided into the following four groups for sampling purposes: 1) IDPs in camps; 2) IDPs living in the host community; 3) Households in informal sites;4) Host population households (including returnees).

Findings have a confidence level of 95% and a margin of error of 10% within each sampled population group, and a confidence level of 95% and a margin of error of 5% when aggregated to the level of the overall town population. When aggregating the data, surveys from each population group were weighted based on estimated population size and number of surveys per group, in order to ensure responses were not skewed towards any particular group.

These findings clarify the preferred modalities for food assistance and the barriers and risks associated with the different modalities. The results of a food vendor survey conducted as part of this assessment are presented in a separate factsheet. More in-depth analysis of both household and vendor data, as well as recommendations regarding the overall assessment objective, can be found in the full assessment report
