IDMC’s estimates of the total number of IDPs in Mexico and the number of new displacements in 2018 are based on an analysis of data provided by the Mexican Commission for the Defence and Protection of Human Rights (CMDPDH). The total number of IDPs refers to people displaced by political violence and land disputes, and violence associated with organised criminal groups.

IDMC’s estimates of the number of new displacements and partial or unverified solutions in 2018 are based on data collected by CMDPDH through its event-based media monitoring. IDMC’s estimate of the number of people who achieved partial solutions concerns 72 who reportedly returned to their houses under improved security conditions, which could not be certified. IDMC categorised the 1,800 people who reportedly returned but for whom no information was available as unverified solutions.
