Demographic data helps UNHCR better understand gender and age breakdown of refugees who UNHCR has submitted to States for resettlement consideration. Resettlement demographics do not necessarily reflect protection needs nor are they relevant for States to accept refugees for resettlement.
Refugees are identified as in need of resettlement when they have particular needs or vulnerabilities in their country of asylum and cannot return to their country of origin. The chart below shows UNHCR submissions of cases based on resettlement categories further explained in UNHCR’s Resettlement Handbook.
