YEMEN NATIONAL SOCIAL PROTECTION MONITORING SURVEY
Yemen National Social Protection Monitoring Survey – Yemen-NSPMS (2012-2013)
The Yemen National Social Protection Monitoring Survey (NSPMS) is a household longitudinal survey with a nationally representative balanced sample of 6,397 households (of an initial sample of 7,152). Each household in the balanced sample was interviewed on a quarterly basis during a 12-month period between October 2012 and September 2013.
The NSPMS was designed and implemented by UNICEF Yemen and the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC) in collaboration with the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG/UNDP) and the local consultancy firm Interaction in Development.
The NSPMS was developed under the technical guidance of a multisectoral committee including representatives of the Central Statistical Organisation (CSO), the Social Welfare Fund (SWF), the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour, the Ministry of Public Health and Population, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Finance and Sana’a University.
The survey had two key objectives:
- 1to provide up-to-date data on how the poor and vulnerable have coped since the 2011 crisis; and
- 2to produce evidence on the targeting of the SWF cash transfer programme and to assess its impact on some developmental indicators.
The NSPMS provides data on the SWF, living conditions, water, sanitation, education, child nutrition, child and maternal health, child protection, work and income, livelihoods and food security.
