Other key findings include: largest IDP populations are in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe. 96.3% of the IDPs were displaced because of the Boko Haram conflict. 1,151,427 returnees from within and outside Nigeria in comparison to 1,039,267 in DTM XIV. Food needs are increasing; 69% of IDPs at sites surveyed cite food as their greatest unmet need, up from 68% in DTM XIV. Non-food items, like blankets, are second in demand at 16%.
