The Syrian Refugee Life Study (S-RLS) uses a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effectiveness of the Norwegian Refugee Council Jordan's Urban Shelter Program. This evaluation seeks to estimate the direct and spillover effects of housing assistance on refugees and the Jordanian communities they live in.
When uploading forecasting surveys, authors are asked to select several key questions which are often the questions they think are the most important to the study.
