This report contains findings of IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Flow Monitoring Surveys (FMS) conducted with children and youth between seven and nineteen years between June 2017 and March 2018 by IOM field staff in Bulgaria, Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, and Slovenia. The survey gathers information about migrant children profiles, including age, sex, areas of origin, levels of education, key transit points on their route, cost of the journey, reasons for moving and intentions. For the purpose of a better understanding of children`s characteristics and experience during transit and at the reception countries an additional module was added that focused on children perception of dangers along the journey, state of health, and perceptions of quality of accommodation at the reception centres. Further information about the questionnaire, sample structure, proxy indicators and survey implementation can be found in the Methodology section.
