This rapid compilation of data analyses provides a ‘stock-take’ of social science and behavioural data related to the outbreak of Ebola in North Kivu and Ituri provinces. Based on data gathered and analysed by organisations working in the region, we aimed to explore convergences and divergences between datasets and, when possible, differences by geographic area, demographic group, time period and other relevant variables.

The data compilation was conducted by Kevin Bardosh (University of Florida) with support from the Social Science in Humanitarian Action Platform and GOARN Research Social Science Group. Feedback was provided by colleagues from Anthrologica, CDC, UNICEF, WHO, IFRC, and Oxfam. This brief prepared by Juliet Bedford, Ingrid Gercama and Kevin Bardosh, serves as an overview of key findings from the data compilation. A longer working document that provides additional analysis is available from julietbedford@anthrologica.com
