Dec 31 2022
- Community Perception
This report provides an overview of how the perceptions, needs and challenges related to COVID-19 have evolved among the migrant population in Thailand in 2022. Drawing on findings from three rounds of IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) COVID-19 Perception Surveys, it also traces how vaccine and booster uptake have increased throughout the year. The first round was conducted from late 2021 until early 2022, the second round in mid 2022, and the third round at the end of 2022. This report focuses mainly on the situation at the end of 2022 (Round 3), but also includes comparisons with Round 1 and Round 2. The Round 3 sample consists of 2,658 respondents, of whom 45 per cent identified as male, 55 per cent as female. Female respondents were more highly represented among Myanmar nationals (68%) compared to Cambodian nationals (46%).
