The objective of the National Monitoring System (NMS) in Ukraine, drawing from IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) approach, is to support the Government of Ukraine in collecting and analysing information on the socio-economic characteristics of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and IDP households, as well as the challenges they faced. The NMS provides a better understanding of the evolving movements and locations, numbers, vulnerabilities and needs of displaced populations in Ukraine. This cumulative report is based is on survey data collected during six survey rounds, from March 2016 to June 2017. It finds among others that socio-demographic characteristics of IDPs and their households have remained relatively stable during the survey period from March 2016 to June 2017. The employment situation of IDPs has started to improve and there has been a slight improvement in the well-being of IDPs. Further, the number of IDPs who have consistently lived in the same place of residence is becoming larger each round.
