As the ISIL conflict ceased across Iraq, conflict-affected areas in the country experienced an uptick in returns of their internally displaced populations.

A similar proportion (1%) of returnees were recorded as living in locations ranked as having the most severe conditions1 between the two rounds:  46,074 returnees across 53 locations for round two compared to 46,998 returnees in 52 locations for round one.

During this round of data collection, DTM has identified 1,920,456 internally displaced persons (320,076 families), dispersed across 18 governorates and 3,325 locations in Iraq.

During this round of data collection, DTM has identified 1,953,984 internally displaced persons (325,664 families), dispersed across 18 governorates and 3,335 locations in Iraq.

The following map provides an overview of the locations and numbers of returnees and IDPs in Iraq as of July 2018.

 

To prioritize interventions, the Return Index measures the quality of returns by evaluating conditions in areas of high return over time as well as the locations that have limited returns.
