I am trying to find figures for the number of refugees in various countries. I am looking at the Internal Displacement Monitoring Center's website here, and I see this for India:
I am very confused by the figures. How is it possible for there to be almost 3 million new displacements in 2018, but yet only 479,000 internally displaced persons at the end of the year? If people are uprooted and find a new home, are they not considered as displaced anymore? Does the 479,000 figure measure how many people were left homeless at the end of the year after being uprooted, or what?
