According to UNHCR statistics for 2011, 1,052 refugees and people in refugee-like situations originated from Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
As UNHCR statistics generally rely on data from host countries, statistics on refugees alone can give an insufficient account of refugee numbers, as some host countries will not grant refugee status to certain groups. Including statistics for individuals in refugee-like situations is an attempt to account for unrecognised refugees and does not include stateless and internally displaced persons.
These statistics, which are for 2010, are the latest available, are provisional, and are subject to change. There are no statistics regarding host countries for refugees originated from Democratic People's Republic of Korea for 2011.
