DTM Identifies just over 2.5 Million IDPs

INTRODUCTION

The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is an International Organization for Migration (IOM) information management tool that gathers specific information regarding the status and location of displaced persons across the country.

From the beginning of January 2014 through 26 February 2015, the DTM identified 2,536,734 internally displaced individuals1, (422,789 families) dispersed across 2,857 distinct locations in Iraq.

Considering available information and the DTM methodology, the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) revises the planning figures for the humanitarian response at 2.6 million internally displaced persons (IDPs).
