…The U.S. takes in relatively few refugees compared to other countries around the world. There were 0.84 refugees per 1,000 inhabitants in the U.S. in mid-2015, according to UN data. Australia, in contrast, had 1.51 refugees per 1,000 people, while Austria had 7.13 refugees per 1,000 and Sweden had 14.66 refugees per 1,000 people.
But the countries that took in the most refugees relative to their populations are in Africa in the Middle East. Lebanon, an outlier, had 208.91 refugees per 1,000 people. Jordan had 89.55 per 1,000 people.
Below are two maps that can help illustrate which countries around the world have become home to refugees.
