What is its purpose?

The indicator assesses the number of people from the affected communities who were engaged by the assisting agency in the physical work required for (re)constructing shelters, both on a paid or voluntary basis.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

1) Review the available documentation on workers' either paid or voluntary work. If the data is missing, interview the staff responsible for the shelter (re)construction and request that s/he provides the required data (do your best to also verify it from other resources).

Disaggregate by

Disaggregate the data by gender.

Important Comments

1) Report separately on the number of people who i) were paid for their work and ii) participated on a voluntary basis.


2) Assess and report i) the average income a paid worker earned; and ii) the total amount the project paid to the workers (the data is important for assessing the economic benefits of your intervention).
