IDMC’s estimate of the total number of IDPs in Egypt is primarily based on Human Rights Watch (HRW) reports from 2015 and 2018 which relied on a combination of satellite imagery analysis of housing destruction and interviews with affected families to estimate displacement in North Sinai. IDMC complemented and verified this analysis with additional information obtained from local media sources.

IDMC’s estimate for the number of new displacements in 2018 is based on the most recent HRW report. Given the lack of systematic data collection, the figure is likely to be an underestimate.
