1. 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 start of January 2014 through 26 March 2015, the DTM identified 2,683,668 internally displaced individuals (447,278 families),1 dispersed across 3,038 distinct locations in Iraq.2 Considering available information and the DTM methodology, the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) has revised the estimated planning figures for the humanitarian response to 2.7 million internally displaced persons (IDPs).
