In December 2017, the World Bank, in collaboration with Somali statistical authorities conducted the second wave of the Somali High Frequency Survey to monitor welfare and perceptions of citizens in all accessible areas of 17 regions within Somalia’s pre-war borders including Somaliland which self-declared independence in 1991. The survey interviewed 4,011 urban households, 1,106 rural households, 468 households in Internally Displaced People (IDP) settlements and 507 nomadic households. The sample was drawn randomly based on a multi-level clustered design. This dataset contains information on economic conditions, education, employment, access to services, security, perceptions and details before displacement for displaced households. It also includes comprehensive information on assets and consumption, to allow estimation of poverty based on the Rapid Consumption methodology as detailed in Pape and Mistiaen (2014).
