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. As of September 27th, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) had recorded some 3,261 formal camps and schools being used by displaced populations. This number may exclude many of the 57% of settlements surveyed by the TSSU which were spontaneous settlement sites. If spontaneous sites sites are included, the total number of sites could be close to 6,000. Planned tent sites represented 17% of the sites surveyed by the TSSU, collective centres 11% and others 13%. In Umerkhot, Sanghar, Mirpur Khas and Khaipur the proportion of spontaneous settlements is much higher than average.
