Democratic of Congo, Palestine, Somalia, Vietnam, Liberia, and Angola. Most of these refugees tend to move across relatively short distances, finding primarily asylum in their neighbouring countries. In the year 2001-2007, major countries of asylum of refugees were Pakistan, Rep. Islamic of Iran, Rep. Arab Syria, Germany, Jordania, Republic. United of Tanzania, and Chad.

There were 51 percent for women refugees, children age less than 18 years old were 10 percent, toddler 10 percent, and older people 7 percent.
