Compared to the height of displacement in July 2010, the total IDP population (individuals) this period shows a 66% decrease: from 1,500,000 in July 2010 to 520,000 in November 2011.

This report contains the analysis and findings of the Temporary Settlement Support Unit (TSSU) assessment. During the course of this survey, 2,572 temporary settlements were assessed, hosting approximately 86,638 households and 454,400 people.

This is a list of 300 TSSU prioritized settlements based on number of families detailing unique site ID, district, Tehsil (sub-districts), Khoski, site name and number of families.

2,547 temporary settlements were assessed, hosting approximately 174,500 households and 824,000 people. This sample represents a fraction of the total number of temporary settlements.

The total displaced population in September 2011 has not changed substantially compared to the previous period, only a decrease of 9% is observed: 149,317 IDP households estimated in July 2011 compared to 135,961 reported in September 2011.

The total displaced population reported in July 2011 has not changed substantially compared to the estimates in May 2011.

The total population reported in May 2011 has not changed substantially from figures released in the previous report. Only a 7% decrease has been observed. (Approximately 680,000 individuals in March compared to 634,000 individuals reported this period: a difference of approximately 46,000).

There is a steady downward trend in IDP population living in IDP sites, albeit at a slower pace when compared to previous reporting periods. Compared to the population reported in July 2010, total IDP figures (individuals) have reduced by 56%.

The IDP population is consistently reducing, with 50% of the originally displaced in July 2010, currently reported to be living in IDP sites.

Between the 25 October and 30 November, DTM field assessments were conducted in 1,356 IDP sites, of which 1,199 were confirmed as having IDP households living on the site.
