During this round, The number of identified IDPs has decreased by 1%, i.e. 25,560 individuals. This decrease is mainly due to ongoing return movements from the governorates of Kirkuk and Salah al-Din. Particularly, the governorates of Kirkuk and Salah al-Din recorded a remarkable decrease (20,244 and 12,558 individuals respectively). Returnees increased by 9%, i.e. 37,704 individuals. At the national level, The governorates hosting the largest IDP populations remain Anbar, Baghdad, and Dahuk with a total of 1,559,742 individuals. A total of 77% of the displaced population (2,440,176 individuals) have fled from three governorates only, namely Anbar, Ninewa and Salah al-Din. From January 2014 to 5 November 2015, the DTM identified 3,181,176 internally displaced individuals (530,196 families), dispersed across 103 districts and 3,542 locations in Iraq.
