In Afghanistan, DTM employs the Baseline Mobility Assessment tool, designed to track mobility, determine the population sizes, locations and geographic distribution of forcibly displaced, return and migrant populations, reasons for displacement, places of origin, and times of displacement, as well as basic demographics, vulnerabilities and priority needs. Data is collected at the settlement level, through community focus group discussions with key informants and direct observations.

As of 31 December 2020, 34 provinces, 401 districts and 12,600 settlements have been assessed, including interviews with 72,305 key informants. Between 2012 and December 2020, 4,196,878 returnees and 4,937,277 IDPs currently living in host communities were identified.
