DTM South Sudan: Bentiu PoC – December Headcount (29 - 31 December 2018)
The Bentiu Protection of Civilian (PoC) site was established in December 2013. As of December 2018, 161,071 beneficiaries remained registered in the site. However, recognizing that there have been significant population changes since the last biometric registration, IOM-DTM conducts monthly headcounts to monitor changing dynamics and displacement trends.
As per the December 2018 headcount, the population stands at 114,330 individuals (18,512 households).
Children under the age of five constitute over a third of the PoC site population. Overall, half of the population are men and half are women (50% each) – among under five year olds boys account for 51 per cent.
