THE NUMBERS: Refugees and displaced people
The UNHCR estimates that there are 587,000 IDPs in Myanmar, however the IDMC estimates that there were 643,000 IDPs due to conflict and violence in Myanmar as of July 2014. Recent fighting would indicate more people will have fled their homes.
Currently there are 102,251 refugees living in 9 refugee camps in Thailand (as of April 2017). Most refugees are ethnic minorities from Myanmar, mainly Karen and Karenni, who live in nine camps in four provinces along the Thai-Myanmar border.
The majority of the Rohingya refugees are unregistered, with only 32 thousand refugees registering themselves with UNHCR and the government of Bangladesh. An estimated 200,000 plus refuges are living unregistered in Bangladesh. Between October and November 2016, about 65,000 Rohingya refugees arrived from Myanmar.
As of the end of April, 150,662 refugees and asylum seekers were registered with UNHCR, while tens of thousands more were still unrecognised. It is unclear how many of these refugees come from Myanmar.
