Syrian Refugees

The war in Syria has developed over several years leading to a refugee crisis not seen since WWII.  I started compiling the refugee numbers in June 2015 hoping to create an art piece recognizing the tragedy. The Economist magazine's September 12th 2015 issue graphically (not shown here) displayed Syrian refugees by Country.  I have used stats from the UNHCR but not all matched the ones from the Economist.

In an effort to reconcile the differences, I put together This table comparing the differences.  This was sent to the magazine, so wait for their answer.

Interesting : the pink cells reference EU Countries without Syrian refugees.
