About is an IOM online platform designed to enhance access to Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) information products on internal displacement, including a visualization of the scale of displacement monitored by IOM. A second complementary platform by DTM,, intends to visualise population flows. Each platform is designed to facilitate a better understanding of displacement and mobility trends within and between countries or regions.  

Mobility tracking aims to quantify the presence of population categories within defined locations, with a frequency that captures mobility dynamics. Its approach is highly customizable: it can be light-touch or in-depth depending on the phase and requirements of the response, and it often increases in depth and detail over successive rounds. The online platform visualises mobility tracking data collected through baseline area assessments.

Baseline area assessments provide information on the presence of internally displaced populations in a defined administrative area, their reason and date of displacement and their shelter situation. Once a baseline or a list of locations hosting displaced populations has been identified, further location and/or site assessments are conducted to gather multi-layer and multi-themed data on the displaced groups. The objective of the location/site assessments is to collect in-depth data on the living conditions and needs of populations. This may include populations in camp and camp-like settings, or populations residing within host communities and/or areas of return of the observed population of concern.

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.

In connection with the ongoing conflict, 2,179,278 internally displaced persons (IDPs) who remain in a situation of displacement across 21 governorates; the majority, 51%, are displaced in Hajjah, Taizz, and Sana’a.

As of 6 July 2015 1,267,590 IDPs comprising 219,104 were identified in Yemen. These dashboards show the spread of these IDPs across 21 governorates and indicate the numbers of IDPs displaced within and outside their governorates of origin.

As of April 2016 942,342 individuals comprising 157,057 households were recorded in the IOM area of responsibility. This is an area comprised of 12 governorates: Abyan, Al Bayda, Al Mahara, Aden, Al Dhale’e, Al Jawf, Hadramaut, Ibb, Lahj, Shabwah, Socotra and Taizz.

Between December 2016 and January 2017, the number of identified IDPs increased by 129,386 individuals (7.3% increase). This brings the total number if IDPs in Nigeria to 1,899,830 (337,353 households).

As of 24 March 2016 IOM has assisted 53,706 IDPs in Abyan, Aden, Al Dhale’e, Hadhramaut, Lahj, Al Mahrah, Sa’adah, Shabwah, Socotra and Taizz governorates through shelter and NFI support. 13,684 vulnerable migrants were provided with health assistance in migrant-concentrated areas and between 24

As of the 31 December, the conflict in the northeastern part of Nigeria has left an estimated 1,770,444 people displaced across 6 most affected states.

Analysis of the DTM data collected across 63 IDP camps between the 13-17 December. 4,030 individuals comprising 1,033 families were recorded across these camps, 49% of these were living in improvised structures.
