Countries of refugees to the US in 2014 and their destinations

November 20, 2015

A tweet from Kyle Walker introduced me to data from the Office of Refugee Resettlement from the US Department of Health and Human Services. Using multiple R packages such as shiny, rCharts, rcdimple, leaflet, and d3heatmap, this post looks at the countries of 69,986 refugees in 2014 and their destinations in the US. All charts are interactive and the code for generating them and the shiny apps can be found in the Refugees repository in my account on GitHub.
