To find the 25 countries where the most refugees accepted by the U.S. come from, so far in 2022, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed State Department data from October 2021 to April, 30, 2022. Specifically, the data comes from the Refugee Processing Center, which is operated by the U.S Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration. We also provided full-year 2021 figures.

Additional data includes: 1. The United Nations Development Programme’s Human Development Index for 2019 (the most recent available). The HDI includes income, health, and education measures and ranks countries on a scale of 0-1 with 1 being most developed. 2. The 2021 Global Peace Index from the Sydney-based nonprofit think tank Institute for Economics & Peace ranks countries on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being most peaceful. The peace index includes measures such as armed conflict and crime. 3. The 2021 Democracy Index is from EIU, the research and analysis division of The Economist Group.
