Nigeria — Displacement Dashboard 26 (January 2019)
IOM manages the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in Nigeria and other countries around the world, to support humanitarian communities with data on displacement and mobility. This information management product determines the status, locations, and needs of people affected by the ongoing conflict in Northeast Nigeria. As of 20 January 2019, the DTM has identified 1,948,349 IDPs (382,296 households) across Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba, and Yobe States. This represents a decrease of four per cent (78,253 persons) from the previous DTM Round. Overall there is a decrease, but when compared with the same geographical area assessed in the previous DTM Round there is an increase of one per cent (13,502 persons), while the number of returns from neighbouring regions into situations of secondary displacement have also been on the increase.
