UNHCR Statistics on Refugees


Here is the refugee story in data and statistics.

The United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR) contributes to coordination and informed decision-making in refugee operations by providing accurate, relevant and timely data and statistics. This key resource is used by all partners to respond to the needs of refugee populations.

This section provides data, reports, maps and other information essential for field operations. It also carries statistical reports on the people of concern to UNHCR: refugees, asylum-seekers, returned refugees, the internally displaced and stateless people. Detailed information on country of asylum, place of origin, gender, age, location and legal status of refugees is available. Indicators on the quality of refugee protection and UNHCR operations are increasingly being collected.
