Over 800,000 Indochinese refugees have been resettled in the United States since 1975. Despite the initial attempts to disperse the refugees throughout the U.S. the processes of family reunification and secondary migration have resulted in the refugee population becoming increasingly concentrated in the western United States. Previous studies on refugee settlement patterns have focused either on the national level or, specific urban areas. This paper addresses this imbalance by identifying the factors that explain the refugee settlement pattern within Garden City, a small town located in rural western Kansas.
