Just under one million (958,820) refugees, 63% of the total 1,517,474 (as of 31 January 2015), live outside of refugee villages, primarily in urban locations in four provinces (KP, Balochistan, Punjab and Sindh) and Islamabad Capital Territory. Locations with the largest urban populations (>10,000 refugees) are concentrated in just twelve locations (with 80% of all urban refugees; to note that unregistered Afghans are also most commonly located in these areas). These twelve locations and other significant populations are linked directly in the table below:
