IDMC’s displacement estimate is based on a 2010 Harvard University study that published survey results of a study conducted by Prince Songkhla University on the displacement of Buddhists who fled the ethnic and religious separatist insurgency in the South. At present, this is no systematic mechanism to identify victims and provide basic assistance to displaced individuals and affected communities. Given the data is several years old, IDMC has low confidence in this estimate.
