The EOIR Statitistics Yearbook (K-1 - K-6) provides the asylum grant rate for the past five years. It has been around 50% nationally per year from FY 2010-FY2014. But it has varied widely by immigration court, from 1% in Atlanta to 84% in New York City in FY 2014. Los Angeles was at 33% and San Francisco 59% Krome in Florida was 4%.
The results are consistent with the disparities between immigration courts documented in Refugee Roulette: Disparities in Asylum Adjudication and Proposals for Reform Paperback by Philip Schrag, Andrew Schoenholtz, and Jaya Ramji-Nogales.
