IOM DTM Iraq Overview Report 17 October 2014

The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is an International Organization for Migration (IOM) information management tool that gathers specific information regarding the condition of displaced persons across the country. DTM data in Iraq is published and disseminated every two weeks.

From the beginning of January through 5 October, 2014 the DTM identified 302,477 displaced families (estimated 1,814,862 individuals) dispersed across 1,850 distinct locations in Iraq1. The figure used by the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) for planning purposes is 1.81 million IDPs and is largely based on the data collected through the DTM. To note that this report does not capture the displacement in Anbar that occurred starting 12 October, as the cut-off date for data collection for this report is 5 October. A report on this crisis will be released separately.
