Geo-Refugee Dataset


The Geo-Refugee dataset provides information on refugee locations and demographics throughout Africa for the years 2000 to 2010. Each refugee location is coded at the first administrative level (province, region or state) with corresponding geographic coordinates and information on population mass and accommodation type ( in camps or centers or dispersed).
