The report cites United Nations Fact Sheet 25 on "Forced Eviction and Human Rights," in explaining how the rights of Tamils are violated by Sri Lanka military forcefully occupying peoples' homes. The document reproduces statistics on the details of public buildings and private homes occupied by the Sri Lanka military.

The second report presents statistics on people affected by different caused during the periods of war in the NorthEast. The report, the authors say, is not complete due to the following reasons: (a) half a million Tamils have displaced to outside Northeast, and (b) the data collection is not completed in the eastern regions due to the unexpected disruption to the project from the ravages of tsunami.

The statistics are encoded in tables with people affected catagorized under number of dead, disabled, injured, disappeared, arrested, torture, and psychologically affected groups.

Further categorization based on people affected by communal violence, war shock, disappearance, bombing, landmine, boat accidents, trauma after arrest, gun fire, lack of medical care, helicopter-strafing, shelling, stab wounds, torture, and air-attack is also included.
