Where are the 4 million displaced Iraqis?

Over 4 million Iraqis have been displaced from their homes. Where have they fled to?

Syria: 1,400,000
Jordan: 750,000
Gulf states: 200,000
Egypt: 100,000
Iran: 54,000
Lebanon: 40,000
Turkey: 10,000
Internally displaced: 2,250,000

The dislocation of over 2 million within the country is so disruptive that provinces are refusing entry to internal refugees, as this BBC article points out: Doors closing on Iraqi displaced.
