Join the Urban Institute and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for an information session on an exciting new data source to understand refugee self-sufficiency and integration in the U.S. For the first time, the Office of Refugee Resettlement is making available to researchers a public use data file from the 2016 Annual Survey of Refugees (ASR). The ASR provides a nationally representative sample of refugees who were resettled in the U.S. between fiscal years 2011 and 2015. The data file and documentation are available now through the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).
The Urban Institute has partnered with HHS on the ASR, collecting and analyzing the results, preparing the public use data file, and leading a survey redesign. Join representatives from the Office of Refugee Resettlement and the Urban Institute to learn about this data and what you need to know to be able to work with it effectively. There will be ample opportunity to discuss questions.
