DART

 

A web-based data management system for displacement data.

Last December, the United Nations recognized the importance of reliable and disaggregated data on displacement.

One tool, which seeks to facilitate data analysis on this issue, is the Joint IDP Profiling Service (JIPS)'s Dynamic Analysis and Reporting Tool (DART).

The DART system operates as a platform for data discovery.  After selecting the dataset you wish to explore, DART allows it to be filtered by a number of indicators, like health or housing, and then further disaggregated to reveal more specific demographic information.

To explore its data, DART offers two interfaces - that is, Graphs & Tables or Maps. This selection determines how you will ultimately visualize your data and, although both offer similar filters and data disaggregations, it is important to note that not all datasets are available in each interface.

Examples

About DART's data

Data hosted on DART is derived from JIPS' displacement profiling exercises, and so it is limited to countries that JIPS has a presence in. As of March 2015, data is available from operations in Afghanistan, Burundi, the Central African Republic, Central America (a regional look at Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador populations), Côte d'Ivoire, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Greece, Ecuador, Haiti, India, Iraq, Kosovo, Libya, Mali, Mexico, Myanmar, Pakistan, Serbia, Somalia, the Syrian Arab Republic, Tunisia, Uganda, and Yemen.

A full methodology behind the data collection is available within each operation's Profile at a Glance document.
