On Dec. 18th, 2015, the UN Refugee Agency released a report indicating that 2015 was on track to see worldwide forced displacement exceed 60 million people for the first time.

In other words, 1 in every 122 people in the world has been forced from their home.

The numbers are up across the board, with significant increases in refugees, asylum seekers, and people displaced internally within their home country.
