Port-au-Prince - A humanitarian agency for the United Nations says the number of Haitians still displaced by the 2010 earthquake has dropped below 200 000.
It says 171 974 people are now living in the gloomy shelter camps. That marks an 89% decline since the camp population peaked in July 2010 at 1.5 million people.
The drop stems from a combination of violent evictions, voluntary departures and efforts to house people through rental subsidies.
The bulletin from the United Nations' Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs draws on information gathered from the International Organisation for Migration.
Ninety-two percent of remaining camps are in the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area.
The UN issued the bulletin Monday.
