Nigeria — Displacement Report 21 (February 2018)

09 Feb 2018 Nigeria Round 21 Download

Round XXI identified 1,782,490 individuals as displaced in the affected states, representing a 4.5 per cent increase (79,810 people) in comparison to the 1,702,680 individuals identified in Round XX (December 2017). The increase is a deviation from the downward trend in the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) recorded over the last few months. To gain insights into the demographic profile of IDPs; reasons for displacement; places of origin; dwelling types; mobility and unfulfilled needs; and changes in the percentages of displaced persons over time, 5 per cent of the identified IDP population - that is 83,925 displaced persons - were interviewed during this round of assessments.
