Title: Myanmar Statistical Information Service (MMSIS)
Description/subject: "The Myanmar Information System (MMSIS) is a web-based national database of statistics about Myanmar developed by the Central Statistical Organization (CSO). This national statistical database is developed through a "project of capacity building through IT based statistical data management in Myanmar" supported by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). The MMSIS is designed to provide statistical data and metadata to the public. It is meant to respond to the growing demands of data users for various statistics that describe socio-economic conditions in Myanmar, at national and sub-national levels, across various periods. At present, official statistics are produced by the CSO, as well as other statistical line agencies comprising the Myanmar National Statistical System (NSS). In addition, the private sector also collects statistical information. The MMSIS is an online 'one-stop shop' of statistical data services that enables users to easily download information in Excel format, both in Myanmar and in English. This feature makes it convenient and simple for data users to obtain their required statistical information needs."

Title: 2015 UNHCR country operations profile - Myanmar
Date of publication: 2015
Description/subject: People of concern: "The main groups of people of concern to UNHCR in Myanmar in 2015 include people without citizenship, IDPs, refugees, returnees and host communities. In 2012, violence in Rakhine State forced around 140,000 people to flee their homes.The majority live in government-designated IDP camps near the state capital, Sittwe, and in surrounding townships. In Kachin State and northern Shan State, more than 100,000 IDPs are displaced and in need of continued humanitarian assistance. They are living in camps in both government-controlled areas, and those under the control of non-state actors. UNHCR also assists the more than 810,000 people without citizenship in Myanmar. In south-eastern Myanmar, UNHCR supports communities hosting the estimated 230,000 IDPs living where the organization is operational. The Office is also preparing for the potential return of some of the 120,000 refugees from Myanmar currently living in temporary camps in Thailand. It is planning support for around 20,000 potential returnees in 2015, although conditions are not yet sufficient to support any organized voluntary return..."
