This data analysis on the possession of identity documents results from two complementary approaches: 1. Assessment of displacement areas (Key Informant level) : These assessments allow to identify areas (host families and displacement sites) where the possession of identity documents (IDs) is either high or low. This approach informs the prioritization of areas where assistance on IDs’ issuance is most needed. 2. Household Surveys : These surveys allow to collect granular information on household level. Whereas the first methodology informs prioritization of areas, surveys allow from a representative sample to have the proportion of households possessing or not IDs. This eventually allowing to define the number of potential beneficiaries of assistance of IDs' issuance.

Results indicate that IDPs on sites have less access to IDs compared to those in host families, 5,071 displaced households on sites (20,300 persons) do not have IDs, the lack of IDs is particularly significant in 23 sites
