In 2018, The United States will take in about 20,000 refugees, below the cap of 45,000 set by Donald Trump’s administration, and a quarter of those granted entry during Barack Obama’s last year. Where are these refugees settling, and what cities will see the biggest drop?

The Associated Press obtained data from the State Department's Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration where refugees landed over time from 2009-17, and the numbers so far for 2018.

According to the State Department: "This data tracks the movement of refugees from various countries around the world to the U.S. for resettlement under the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program." The data does not include other types of immigration or visits to the U.S.
The data tracks the refugees' stated destination in the United States. In many cases, this is where the refugees first lived, although many may have since moved.
