R4V Latin America and the Caribbean, Venezuelan Refugees and Migrants in the Region - Nov 2023
The statistics displayed on refugees and migrants from Venezuela in the 17 countries of the R4V Response reflect official figures issued by the respective host governments. Their use and publishing for R4V products is closely coordinated with relevant government statistical offices and/or other national government departments responsible for management of refugee and migrant statistics. These statistics are periodically updated, with some governments updating them on a monthly basis, while others update them in other undefined intervals. As a result, an increase in reported figures from one month’s R4V publication to the next in any particular country could appear as a significant increase in arrivals of refugees and migrants from Venezuela, while, in fact, it is mostly related to individual host country reporting and publishing procedures.
