Assessing the impact of displacement on IDPs and host communities in Nigeria
This preliminary analysis starts to piece together the impact and potential policies to support IDPs beyond humanitarian support. It analyzes data collected by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) in the state capital of Jos in February 2021 from 300 individuals – 150 internally displaced individuals and 150 people from within the host communities. Women make up 51% of respondents in IDP households and 49% in hosts households. The sample size while relatively small, provides a starting point to understand progress in reaching different development outcomes based only on the households sampled. While effort was made for the sample to be representative, the representativeness does not capture the entire population of IDPs or hosts in the country.
