Terrorists are still forcing hundreds of people from their homes every year, figures have revealed.
In the last year alone, more than 200 people fled after threats from paramilitaries.
According to official figures, 2,617 people have presented themselves as homeless to the Housing Executive because of intimidation in the last five years.
The statistics were revealed by Communities Minister Caral Ni Chuilin in response to a written question by Ulster Unionist MLA Andy Allen.
Forms of intimidation listed include sectarianism, racism, anti-social behaviour, homophobia and abusive attitudes towards people with a disability.
A breakdown of the figures provided to the minister by the Housing Executive showed that of the 2,617 complaints between 2015/16 and 2019/20, around two-thirds (1,780) were accepted.
An overall downward trend in complaints was reported, but 335 people still presented as homeless because of intimidation in 2019/20 (the equivalent of nearly one a day), compared to a peak of 661 complaints in 2016/17.
Paramilitary threats were the biggest complaint, accounting for 1,962 cases, of which 1,462 were accepted by the Housing Executive. This included 246 in the last year alone, most of which (212) were accepted.
Anti-social behaviour saw 347 people present as homeless. The Housing Executive accepted this in 189 of these cases.
Sectarian intimidation prompted 157 complaints (79 accepted), while racist harassment saw 103 complaints (57 accepted).
There were 45 complaints for intimidation based on sexual orientation, with 26 accepted.
A relatively small figure of five complained of intimidation because of a disability, which was accepted three times.
The Belfast City Council area has consistently seen the highest number of complaints of intimidation, reaching 113 in 2019/20, which was almost three times lower than the 2016/17 peak for the area of 301.
The Lisburn and Castlereagh area was the second highest at 275 incidents in five years, closely followed by Ards and North Down Borough Council (268) and Derry City and Strabane District Council (261).
The lowest by far was in the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council area, which has always reported 10 or fewer incidents every year.
Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, Mr Allen said: "It's unacceptable that paramilitaries still continue to have a grip on communities right across Northern Ireland."
He added that while the intimidation points system used by the Housing Executive to consider relocating tenants had been abused in the past, he believed that a strong system was now in place.
"It's not right in this day and age that people are still being threatened by paramilitaries, self-appointed brigadiers who are continuing to wreak havoc and misery right across our communities," Mr Allen said.
"We need to continue to see a robust criminal justice response to this and we need to remove these paramilitaries and organised crime gangs from our streets.
"The work of the Paramilitary Crime Taskforce has to be commended. We're seeing some proactive work in terms of removing drugs from our streets.
"But what we need to see is a much more robust process. The numbers are still quite high and we need to be able to get to a point where paramilitarism is no longer an everyday occurrence. I'm still approached by people in my capacity as an MLA, not just in east Belfast but people right across Northern Ireland who are the victim of this type of criminality.
"First and foremost, you need to have a clear deterrent. That will stop people wanting to be involved in that type of behaviour.
"Education is key as well against young people involved in these types of activities."
On the other forms of intimidation reported, including racism and homophobia, he said: "Any type of intimidation is completely unacceptable. People should be able to live together in communities without being forced out of their homes."
