The Integration Outcomes of U.S. Refugees: Successes and Challenges

The Integration Outcomes of U.S. Refugees: Successes and Challenges. Migration Policy Institute. Randy Capps et al. June 2015.

Using previously non-public refugee admissions data from the State Department, this analysis finds that even as refugees come to the United States from increasingly diverse origins and linguistic backgrounds, some arriving with very low native-language literacy and education, most integrate successfully over time. The report examines refugees’ employment, English proficiency, educational attainment, income and poverty status, and public benefits usage. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
