Compared to DTM Round 7, there was a considerable decrease in total number of households living in displacement sites (from 4,628 to 4,024) while the number of individuals had also continued to decrease (from 21,315 to 18,292). This could mean that a number of households had either returned to repair or rebuild their homes, or gone in search of livelihood opportunities elsewhere.

It was also noted that there had been a slight decrease in the proportion of male individuals living in displacement sites - from 50% in Round 7 to 49% in Round 8. It could be due to the reason that male members of some households who returned back earlier from place of origin has gone back to prepare land for plantation season.
