The resilience tools that were used in the previous studies have been harmonized to ensure that results are comparable over time.  A household is considered a beneficiary if they have participated in any of the interventions implemented by SomReP.  Data saturation was reached, i.e. till no new data seemed to be emerging  They are recommended because previous resilience measurements used the same statistical parameters and for our results to be comparable, we need to maintain the same values of margin error (8%) and confidence interval (95%).
