Immigration and Citizenship Data
We receive and adjudicate an average of 7 million petitions and applications annually.* These petitions and applications typically allow foreign nationals to stay in United States as lawful permanent residents (LPR) or immigrants, to stay temporarily to work as nonimmigrants, or to obtain U.S. citizenship.
These reports provide data on various aspects of USCIS operations. In addition, certain tables list the USCIS office responsible for the adjudication.
You can find additional data by visiting the:
- DHS Office of Immigration Statistics – Reports on the number and characteristics of persons granted LPR and citizenship status
- USCIS Electronic Reading Room – Frequently requested USCIS statistics
- Reports and Studies – Reports including backlog elimination, employment eligibility verification, and USCIS programs
- Buy American and Hire American: Putting American Workers First – Reports on the hiring practices of employers who petition for foreign national workers, Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) provided to foreign nationals, and related policy memoranda
- E-Verify Program Reports – Reports on E-Verify user surveys, key findings, and recommendations
