New displacements (disasters): This corresponds to the latest reported occurrences of disaster-related internal displacement.
New displacements (conflict): This corresponds to new instances of conflict-related internal displacement that occurred in 2018.
Total number of IDPs (conflict): This corresponds to the total number of people living in internal displacement as a result of conflict and violence as of 31 December 2018.
Number of IDPs who have made partial progress towards a durable solution (conflict): This corresponds to the number of IDPs whom our data providers have identified as having returned, resettled or locally integrated in 2018 and for whom the evidence obtained by IDMC suggests that progress toward durable solutions is only partial given their living conditions. In a few instances this number may refer to movements rather than people.
Number of IDPs whose progress towards durable solutions cannot be verified (conflict): This corresponds to the number of IDPs whom our data providers have identified as having returned, resettled or locally integrated in 2018 but for whom there is no available evidence to corroborate progress toward durable solutions. In a few instances this number may refer to movements rather than people.

Average expected number of displacements per year – for sudden-onset hazards:
IDMC uses information about the probability of future hazard scenarios to model displacement risk based on probable housing destruction. Find out how we calculate our metrics here and explore the likelihood of future displacement around the world here.
