One in every 122 individuals across the globe is either a refugee, internally displaced or seeking asylum, according to a new report from the UN.

Follow up:

If this were the population of a country, it would be the world's 24th biggest. A total of 59.5 million people were forcibly displaced by the end of 2014, up on 51.2 million in 2013.

Even though Turkey is the world's largest refugee-hosting nation with 1.59 million, Lebanon comes first on a per capita basis. There are 1.15 million refugees in Lebanon - 232 per 1,000 inhabitants. Before Syria's civil war erupted in 2011, there were a mere 8,000 refugees in Lebanon. However, the country's socio-economic absorption capacity is now bein pushed to the limit with an estimated 403,600 Syrian refugees registering in 2014.

This chart shows the number of refugees per 1,000 inhabitants in 2014.
