Population mobility, displacement and impacted areas based on analyses of anonymized mobile network data (created on 15 August 2016)
Population movement estimates are calculated by combining de-identified data on SIM card movements with available population data. Changes in mobility pattern are identified by comparing SIM card movements to normal pre-earthquake movements. Estimates will be updated and calibrated as more data becomes available.
