Summary

Recognizing that there have been significant population changes since the last overall biometric registration / verification, IOM DTM conducts regular population counts to monitor population dynamics and displacement trends. This exercise shows that the actual number of persons currently living at Bentiu IDP Camp remains lower than the registered total.

As per April 2022 population count findings, the Bentiu IDP Camp population stands at 112,329 individuals (17,714 households) in 12,017 inhabited shelters (on average 9 individuals per shelter). This represents a four per cent increase (4,939 individuals/834 households) compared to January 2022.
