In response to the need for accurate and up-to-date information on human mobility and forced displacement in north-east Nigeria, IOM activated its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) to support the Government and the humanitarian community with
multi-layered data on the numbers, trends, status, locations and needs of populations affected by the on-going conflict in north-east Nigeria. This dashboard provides key figures from Round 39 of assessment, conducted from 30 August to 15 October 2021.
In Round 39, a total of 2,200,357 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) were identified in 452,363 households. This signified an
increase of less than 1 per cent (or 17,744 individuals) compared to Round 38 when 2,182,613 IDPs were recorded (July 2021).
