j    Data as at the end of December.
k    The figure reported relates to stateless persons who are also refugees from Myanmar, mainly from Rakhine State. This figure exceptionally includes 911,660 stateless refugees who are also counted in the column under ìRefugees.î UNHCRís statistical reporting currently follows a methodology that reports on one legal status as a person of concern only. However, due to the extraordinary size of the displaced stateless population in Bangladesh, UNHCR considered it important to reflect, on an exceptional basis, the dual status that this population group possesses as both refugees and stateless persons as to do otherwise might convey the mistaken impression that the overall number of stateless persons has declined significantly. This approach will not be replicated in the database and in the Excel version of this table and, therefore, figures may differ.
