(CNN) -- Relief officials are working to assess the death tolls from the December 26 tsunami that killed tens of thousands of people in more than 11 countries.

As of February 22, government agencies and the United Nations said the death toll stood at 169,752 with 127,294 people listed as missing.

Indonesia: The Ministry of Health puts the number of dead at 122,232, with 113,937 missing.

Sri Lanka: The overall death toll for Sri Lanka stands at 30,974.

Still missing in Sri Lanka are 4,698 people, and another 100,000 families have been displaced.

We are now reporting government figures for all Sri Lankan districts except Mulativu, which is entirely under rebel control. For Mulativu, we use the rebel figures and believe this more accurately reflects the numbers. Currently, the government has estimated 3,000 dead in that district; the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) say the number is 1,932 dead with another 1,000 missing.

India: 10,776 dead; 5,640 missing -- 5,554 on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands -- according to the Indian government.

Thailand: 5,395 dead, 2,993 missing. Many of the missing are presumed dead.

Somalia: 150 dead, according to the United Nations.

Maldives: 82 dead, 26 missing, says the Maldives' National Disaster Center.

Malaysia: 68 dead.

Myanmar: 59 dead, according to the International Federation for the Red Cross, which is coordinating with the Myanmar government.

Tanzania: 10 dead, according to the U.N.

Seychelles: 3 dead, according to the U.N.

Bangladesh: 2 dead, according to the U.N.

Kenya: 1 dead, according to Kenyan media.
