IDMC’s estimate of the total number of IDPs in Thailand is based on data from a 2010 Harvard University study that drew upon the results of a survey conducted by Prince Songkhla University to evaluate the impacts on Buddhists of the ethnic separatist insurgency in the south of the country. Given that there is no systematic mechanism to identify victims and provide assistance to displaced people and affected communities and that the available data is several years old, IDMC considers its estimate to be approximate.
