The enrolment of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) was conduced in Maradi, Tahoua and Tillaberi in Niger by the Government through the National Committee for Data Collection and Information Management on Internally Displaced Persons in Niger established in October 2019. The Committee acts in these regions with the technical support of UNHCR. Its aim is to ensure an adequate protection response for IDPs following the attacks perpetrated by non-state armed groups in their villages. The enrolment helped to identify the socio-economic profile of IDPs and their needs, detect potential cases of statelessness, and ease the aid of the humanitarian community. The enrolment data contain information on heads of households, family composition, specific needs of household members, documents held by family members, reasons for displacement, places of origin and current location. In Tahoua, 6,955 households were registered between May and October 2020. They originated from Tahoua, Tillia and other departments in the Tahoua region of Niger. The data provided here is a sample of the original data.
