On 14 April 2015, ESCWA signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) at the UN House in Beirut on the implementation of a survey to assess the impact of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza strip in 2014, and the socioeconomic living conditions of Palestinian households in the West Bank and the Gaza strip.

Entitled "The Impact of Israeli Occupation: Measuring and Monitoring the Living Conditions in Palestine," the survey aims to provide a statistical database to monitor the socio-economic living conditions of Palestinian households in the Gaza strip as a first phase, and in the West Bank under occupation practices, following the 2014 Israeli aggression. It is also intended to provide a statistical database on individual needs and the quality of life in the West Bank and the Gaza strip, and to make this data available for the use of ministries and governmental institutions, international organizations, UN agencies, researchers and interested parties, which would help in drawing the right comparisons of the living conditions of Palestinian households before and after the aggression.
