Refugees in America

I was curious about what the refugee population in the United States is like, so I did some research and created a fact sheet specifically focusing on the 84,994 that were accepted into the country in 2016.

The most interesting fact I learned is that 46% (38,901) of refugees that came to the U.S. in 2016 were Muslim, the highest number to be admitted since data on self-reported religious affiliations first became available to the public in 2002.
