Immigration and Citizenship Data

USCIS receives and adjudicates approximately 6 million petitions and applications annually from individuals and employers. 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 for some other purpose, or to obtain U.S. citizenship.

These reports generally provide summary data on the number of applications or petitions received, approved, denied and pending. In addition, certain tables list the USCIS office responsible for the adjudication.
