A Socio-economic Profile of the Nahr El-Bared and Beddawi Refugee Camps of Lebanon: Based on the 2006 Labour Force Survey among Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon

As a consequence of the armed struggle between the Islamist group Fatah al-Islam and the Lebanese Army in and around the Nahr El-Bared Palestinian refugee camp north of Tripoli the past 3 weeks, the vast majority of its population has fled their homes and is now dispersed to the nearby Beddawi refugee camp, and other locations. Based on recent household survey data, this brief report presents statistics on the two populations most severely affected by the displacement from Nahr El-Bared. While the report provides data on the two populations in parallel and comparisons identify variation according to some indicators, the two populations are quite similar overall.
