Explanation: The tabulated population figures include registered Syrian refugees (1,078,338 in Sept. 2015). The registration has been suspended in May 2015. The number of non-registered Syrian refugees is estimed to be about 400,000. Palestine refugees residing in camps (about 200,000 in July 2014) are not included in the regular population figures but reported by the detail pages. Furthermore, there are about 40,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria in Lebanon. Lebanese returnees (28,600 in mid-2015) are also not considered. The actual total end-of-2015 population of Lebanon was – using these numbers – about 6.05 million.
