Latest figures analysis

IDMC considered information about cases of internal displacement registered by the police and by the Office of the Human Rights Ombudsman, as well as the information provided in a JIPS IDP profiling report published in March 2018. However, IDMC based its estimate of new displacements on data collected in a representative survey conducted in November 2017 by the Instituto Universitario de Opinión Pública of the Universidad Centroamericana José Simeón Cañas. For lack of reliable data, IDMC did not publish a stock or returns estimate for 2017.
