NMS Ukraine Round 4 Report September 2016

Face-to-face interviews: Two thousand (2,000) IDPs were interviewed with this method in cooperation with the Ukrainian Center of Social Reforms in 400 territorial units across the country during September 2016. The sampling of territorial units was devised for all government-controlled oblasts of Ukraine and distributed in proportion to the number of IDPs registered there.

Telephone survey: Two thousand five hundred and thirty two IDPs (2,532) were interviewed by IOM staff in September 2016 with this method. The sampling was derived from the IDP registration database maintained by the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine.

Data from key informants: A list of 792 key informants with their contact information has been formed across the country to monitor the developments of the situation with IDPs in the regions (the information on distribution of key informants by oblast may be found in Table 3 of Annex 1). Within the monitoring of the situation with IDPs in September 2016, 792 key informants were interviewed, and 480 of them had participated in previous rounds of the survey. Most of the key informants work in non-governmental organizations (48.8%), and a significant share work in institutions of social protection (18.3%). Nearly eight percent (7.7%) are employed in health care establishments, while 7.2% of key informants represent local authorities, 4% are engaged in educational institutions, and 14% work in other organizations. The bulk of the issues that IDPs address to key informants concern searching for jobs and housing for rent, renewal and issuance of documents, registration for social benefits and pensions, need for financial, humanitarian and psy- chological assistance, and health care.

Focus group discussions: Six (6) focus groups were conducted in September 2016 in six locations (Kyiv, Sievierodonetsk, Kropyvnytskyi (Kirovohrad), Vinnytsia, Kharkiv, Rivne) with 87 IDPs (between 12 to 16 people in each group).
