The Syria Crisis

Visualized in Numbers

Population Exodus

Prior to the war, Syria housed over 25 million people, including refugees from around the world. In an ironic turn of events, Syria has lost half of its population to a mass emigration of its citizens as refugees.

To the right (or below if you're on mobile), you'll find a map of Syria, divided amongst its states. Hover over and see how many people have fleed.

A Nation of Child Refugees

Over half of the refugees of Syria are children. Some have been tortured, many have witnessed violence against and the death of loved ones, and most have been left to fend for themselves in a world meant for the toughest of adults.

Hover over the graph to the left (or above on mobile) and look through to see the progression and makeup of the number of refugees.
