This report of the Round XIX Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) assessment by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) aims to improve understanding of the scope of displacements, returnees and the needs of affected populations in conflict-affected states of northeast Nigeria. The report covers the period of 3 to 24 September 2017 and includes the six most-affected states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe. Round XIX identified 1,713,771 individuals as displaced in the affected states, representing a marginal decrease of 43,517 persons (or three per cent) compared to the population of 1,757,288 that was identified in Round XVIII (August 2017). This is in line with the trend that has been observed over the last few months, mainly on account of increase in returns. The number was arrived at through data collected by different DTM tools used by enumerators at various administrative levels, i.e., at Local Government Areas (LGAs), wards and displacement sites. For insights into demographic profile of internally displaced persons (IDPs), reasons for displacement, changes in the percentages of displaced persons over time, origin, dwelling types, mobility and unfulfilled needs, 80,102 displaced persons were interviewed in this round of assessment. This sample represents five per cent of the identified IDP population.
