The NIDP Survey report describe disadvantage youths in every country as young people with fewer opportunities than their peers, and are consider as youth at risk, vulnerable youth, disconnected youth or socially excluded youth in the society.
He notes that the NIDP, commonly known as zogos, are vulnerable people with special needs, including internally displaced and poverty-stricken men, women, youth, as well as child, among others, who were associated with the Liberian civil war.
He says the prognosis of the war that brought people together, and the process that led to children getting involved in the war created the National Internally Displace Person or NIDP, noting that most of those individuals were involved in war, and that the disarmament process did not really affect some.
He discloses the survey was carried out in Montserrado, Grand Bassa, Margibi, and Bong Counties, respectively, capturing over 20,000 NIDP
from households of over 5,000 respondents.
"The highest incidence of NIDP was measured in Drogheda and Tallaght, both of which had an average of 32.8% for the second quarter of this year.
Cork was above the national average at 30.3% NIDP, while Dublin and Limerick were slightly below at 27.4% and 27.2% respectively."
