DTM South Sudan — Wau Intentions Survey and Multi-Sectorial Assessment Report | December 2017

The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) team conducted the intention survey between 9 and 16 November 2017 in six of the collective sites, with a sample size of 823 households comprising 5,127 individuals out of a total of 45,445 individuals (9,885 households) currently living in those six sites. Two-thirds of interviewed households (66%) intend to remain in their current displacement site. Among those who intend to return, only 10% intended to do so within the next month. The most common reason cited for arriving at the site and intending to stay is access to security. Likewise, indecision about whether to return or to remain is closely linked to uncertainty regarding the security situation. Family reunification is the main reason to leave, cited by one third (35%) of those intending to leave.
