# of families surveyed 23,048 1,537 2,050 4,695 18,446 11,816 969 4,513

Data Analysis: One of the key findings of the IVAP so far is that 71% of all conflict IDP families earn an income below the standard of poverty for Pakistan (5000 Rs per month). This is to say, that on the whole, IDP families can be expected to be more vulnerable in terms of income than families who have not been displaced by the conflict. It should be noted that while IDP families living off camp have higher incomes than those living in Jalozai (on average), 84% of all families living off camp are also paying rent at an average 2300 Rs per month- going a long way towards balancing incomes with those of families living in Jalozai.
