How can we bring representative quantitative data to life through the collection of qualitative human stories?

Working with a local film-maker, Kakuma Film Team, this project brings quantitative data (collected through the Shocks, Vulnerability, and Livelihoods project) to life through the use of qualitative interviews, photography, and film. By combining quantitative and qualitative data with multi-media, we aim to create a representative image of how refugees really live. The people and households represented through this pilot live in Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei settlement, Kenya, and lie at particular percentiles of the income distribution identified through the quantitative survey. We will continue to update this page as our research progresses.

This project is in collaboration with Gapminder facilitated through their tool Dollar Street, and is funded by the University of Oxford and the IKEA Foundation.
