Sampling Hard to Reach Populations: A Survey on Forced Migration During Maoist Insurgency in Nepal

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Most research on forced migration acknowledges the fact that acquiring accurate data on refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) is challenging, if not impossible. With the help of a national human rights organization, embedded in communities across Nepal, I employed a weighted multi-stage cluster sampling technique to survey over 1800 individuals from 56 village development committees (VDCs) drawn from 11 of the 75 districts of Nepal to study individual coping behaviors during a decade-long insurgency in Nepal. This national sample represents districts that were hard-hit during the conflict, all three topographical regions, all five development regions, and both rural and urban parts of Nepal.
