This factsheet aims to provide a snapshot of multi-sectoral conditions, needs and challenges among the migrant population in Ranong province, Thailand as captured between August to October 2022 by IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix’s (DTM) multi-sectoral assessment of needs. The purpose of this assessment is to provide detailed multi- and inter-sectoral analysis of the magnitude and severity of needs among migrant populations, identify vulnerable population groups and geographic areas with the most acute needs, inform development assistance planning and relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targets, and provide sectoral and inter-sectoral baselines for future assessments.
The tool was developed with the collaboration of IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) and various sectoral IOM units, including Labour Mobility and Social Inclusion (LMI), Migration Health Division (MHD), Migrant Assistance and Counter-Trafficking Unit (MACTU), and the Emergency and Post-Crisis unit (EPC), among others. The survey is a household-level survey, but also includes sections for which the respondent had to answer on behalf of every member of their household (for example, the ages of all members of the household). DTM surveyed a representative sample randomly selected within the population of interest, which included Myanmar and Cambodian migrants in Thailand. DTM aimed for a 50:50 balance between female and male respondents. Answers from 2,318 respondents were analyzed. Counting all respondents and their household members, 5,760 individuals are represented by the assessment.
