Description

The number of refugees admitted into the United States has fallen to record lows. This drop affects not only refugees and their families, but also towns and cities across the United States that have embraced and been strengthened by refugees in recent years. To commemorate World Refugee Day, NAE took a look at almost two decades of refugee resettlement data. In the data interactive below, we show how refugee resettlement has helped boost the economic fortunes and futures of hundreds of cities by tracking every refugee resettled in the United States between 2002 and 2018.
