How we gather our data

Full-time statisticians in UNHCR’s Field Information and Coordination Section track the number of people forced to flee so that when a major displacement crisis erupts, we are able to predict how many people need helphow much help they need and how many staff we must deploy.

These figures are released every year in our Global Trends and Global Appeal reports.
