Information presented in this dashboard comes from the IOM Iraq’s DTM Returnee Location Assessment, conducted by IOM’s field teams across the country from 25 March to 10 May 2016. 95% of returns are permanent or stationary (as opposed to “back and forth”). 87% of returnees intend to remain. 96% of returnee families were no longer separated. Drinking water is the main priority need for returnees in subdistricts located in various governorates, with approximately 30% of the returnee families in Iraq. Residence damage is, at 76%, the most common reason for returnees’ inability to move back into their habitual residences before displacement, followed by the location itself being dangerous, with 14%.  Returnees’ access to income is most difficult in the governorates of Kirkuk and Anbar, where most locations reported less than a quarter of returnee families with access to income.
