According to UNHCR statistics for 2011, 15,013 refugees and people in refugee-like situations originated from Lebanon.
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 2011, are the latest available, are provisional, and are subject to change.
