Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM)

Tools and Methodology

In order to effectively understand and use the data presented through DTM, it is important to review and understand the methodology involved in the assessment. Methodology and forms used for DTM operations are available here.

JUIN 2013 – Displacement Tracking Matrix

Plus de trois ans et demi après le séisme, 279 000 personnes déplacées, soit 71 000 ménages déplacés, vivent toujours dans 352 sites et camps en Haïti. Depuis 2010, il y a une réduction de 82% du total des ménages déplacés et une réduction de 77% du nombre de sites de déplacés.

Avril 2013 - Displacement Tracking Matrix

Plus de trois ans après le tremblement de terre, 320.000 personnes déplacées, soit 81.000 ménages, vivent encore dans 385 camps ou sites d’hébergement en Haïti. Depuis 2010, le nombre total de ménages déplacés a baissé de 77% alors qu’il est de 75% pour le nombre de camps de déplacés. La période rapportée (de janvier à mars 2013) présente la plus forte baisse en termes de populations déplacées depuis juin 2012 et une diminution trois fois plus importante qu’au cours de la période précédente (d’octobre à décembre 2012).

Janvier 2013 - Mise à jour de la Matrice de Suivi des Déplacements (DTM). (Fr/En)

Trois ans après le séisme dévastateur qui a frappe Haïti en janvier 2010, on estime qu'environ 347.284 individus (ou 87.750 ménages) demeurent encore sur 450 sites de déplacés. Comparativement à 2010, cela représente une diminution d'environ 77 % en termes de population déplacée (ménages et individus).

Novembre 2012 - Displacement Tracking Matrix

En date d’Octobre 2012, 357 785 individus (90 415 ménages) demeurent sur 496 sites localisés dans les zones affectées par le séisme.
Cela reflète une baisse de 3% (personnes déplacées) de la population par rapport à août 2012. Le taux est légèrement plus faible que celui de 5% observé sur la période.

DISPLACEMENT TRACKING MATRIX V2.0 – 20 JUNE 2012

As of June 2012, there are now less than 400,000 people living in IDP sites across the earthquake affected areas in Haiti. Specifically, an estimated 390,276 IDP individuals (or 97,913 IDP households) reside in 575 camps and camp-like settlements. For this period, a decrease of 7% is observed compared to the population (individuals) in April 2012.
Compared to estimates in July 2010, when displacement was at its peak, a 75% decrease in IDP individual population is observed.
Majority of the displaced population (60% or 233,857 IDP individuals) continue to reside in the 40 sites in Port-au-Prince. On the other hand, 79% of sites (453 sites) host less than 150 households in each site, accounting for about 19% of the IDP population (72,490 individuals). Between November 2010 and June 2012, the number of sites on private land decreased by 53% (from 882 to 413 sites), whereas sites on public land decreased only by 30% (from 222 to 155 sites)

DISPLACEMENT TRACKING MATRIX V2.0 - 30 APRIL 2012

Compared to the previous report (February 2012), a 14% decrease in IDP individual population is observed. This rate of decrease is the largest observed since March 2011. A total of 602 sites hosting 105,270 IDP households or 420,513 IDP individuals remain open across the earthquake affected area. Compared to July 2010, a decrease of 73% is observed (IDP individual population). The commune of Port–au‐Prince reports the highest decrease in IDP population, with a 21% decrease in population, from 131,859 IDP individuals in February to 100,783 in April 2012. Similar to previous periods, majority of the displaced population, about 59% (61,571 households), resides in 48 of the larger sites (sites hosting more than 500 households). These sites make up only 8% of all identified IDP sites. IDP sites hosting less than 100 IDP households make up 68% (408 IDP sites) of the total number of sites though they only host about 13% of the total IDP population (about 13,372 IDP
households). Return projects are observed to have contributed considerably to the decrease in IDP sites and population during this period. Of particular interest is the
ongoing intervention in Champs de Mars, which has resulted in the closure of five of the 11 camps in the area, and more than 50% of the original population (estimated at around 5,000 IDPs) provided with return/relocation assistance.

DISPLACEMENT TRACKING MATRIX V2.0 UPDATE - 20 February 2012

- Total number of IDPs living in IDP sites is now less than 500,000. Specifically: there are about 490,545 IDP individuals (or 120,791 IDP households) remaining in 660 IDP sites in the earthquake affected areas.
- Compared to the previous period (January 2012) a 5% decrease in population is observed: 515,961 IDP individuals in January 2012 compared to 490,545 IDP individuals in February 2012.
- The communes of Tabarre and Port-Au-Prince report highest numbers of IDP households and individuals moving out for this period.
- Similar to the previous periods, majority of the displaced population, about 60% (72,152 households) resides in 52 of the larger sites (sites hosting more than 500 households). These 52 sites make up only 8% of all identified IDP sites this period.
- IDP sites hosting less than 100 IDP households make up 69% (453 IDP sites) of the total number of sites though they only host about 12% of the total IDP population (about 14,954 IDP households).
- More IDP sites on private land have closed between November 2010 and February 2012 (from 882 sites to 470 sites remaining open), compared to IDP sites on public land (from 222 sites in November 2010 to 178 sites in February 2012).

Displacement Tracking Matrix V2.0 Special Update - 12 January 2012

Two years after the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January 2010, the Government of Haiti, together with humanitarian partners and the affected communities continue to work together rebuild the country. The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) continues to be carried out in support of the Emergency Shelter and Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster and other humanitarian and recovery actors in Haiti.

The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), a monitoring tool designed to track internally displaced persons (IDP) population movement and provide updated information on the basic conditions in camps and camp-like settlements, was rolled out in March 2010, in support of over all emergency response efforts. DTM is implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), in partnership with the Department of Civil Protection (DPC in French), in an effort to provide updated information on the displacement situation in Haiti.

DTM Report November 2011

- Compared to the previous period (September 2011) a 6% decrease in population is observed: 550,560 IDP individuals in September 2011 compared to 519,164 IDP individuals in November 2011.

- Similar to the previous periods, majority of the displaced population 58% (74,183 households) resides in 53 of the larger sites (sites hosting more than 500 households). These 53 sites make up only 7% of all identified IDP sites this period.
- IDP sites hosting less than 100 IDP households make up 71% (541 IDP sites) of the total number of sites though they only host about 14% of the total IDP population (about 17,838 IDP households).
- More IDP sites on private land have closed between November 2010 and November 2011 (from 882 sites to 553 sites remaining open), compared to IDP sites on public land (from 222 sites in November 2011 to 190 sites in November 2011).

DTM September 2011

DTM Round 3 March 2011 Population in camps decreasing, but where did they go?

DTM V2.0 Update - March 16, 2011The International Organization for Migration (IOM), in support of the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster, continues to implement the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM). This is a monitoring tool to collect the most updated data on the earthquake affected internally displaced persons (IDP) population living in IDP sites in Haiti. The DTM was initially rolled out in March 2010, and was further revised (DTM v2.01) in October 2010 under the supervision of the IOM Data Management Unit with the data collection being undertaken by IOM directly.

DTM summary of IDP situation 15 October 2010

Based on the latest data available (Mid October 2010), 1356 sites have been identified and monitored in the area affected by the earthquake. The mobility of IDPs in sites is still important. Due to expected harsh weather conditions, such as flooding, or lack of services, IDPs move from one camp to another. In support of the planning of the humanitarian assistance, the DTM is tracking this IDP mobility and figures between surveys in order to identify possible trends.
