А это хорошо или плохо?

Тому, кто хотел получить визу, но "пролетел" - плохо. А вообще - хорошо, потому что показывает, что экономика вверх пошла.

ага, "русская зима" закончилась и экономика вверх пошла))), об этом даже руководитель ФРС сказала, как вас, бедолаг, зима в этом году подкосила...

Не только

Мексиканы? Разве на них распространяется TN виза? Это если не учитывать всякие Пуэрто-Рики.

As long as Mexico is a part of North America, citizens of this country can benefit from NAFTA.

Я попробовал поискать и заблудился. Где-то публикуется официальная статистика по выданным H1-B с разбивкой по видам деятельности и по странам ? Например - IT-шников столько-то, финансистов - столько-то, производственников столько-то. Из Индии столько-то, из Германии столько-то и т.д.

[I hope the journal's owner does not mind me posting these links]

(1) Department of Labor has some statistics on Labor Condition Applications (and also on Labor Certifications, for permanent residence) here: http://www.foreignlaborcert.doleta.gov/performancedata.cfm

For example, under "Historical Program Fact Sheets for FY 2013" you see the "H-1B Specialty Occupations Labor Condition Program" report, which has the stats for 909,465 "positions certified" in fiscal year 2013, with breakdown by major occupations, as well as the list of top US states where jobs are located and top employers. (Note that the number of "positions certified" is probably much hgher than the number of new H-1(b) visas issued in the year, since many people extend their stay, others move between jobs, while some positions are never filled.) The Labor Dept stats don't have breakdown by applicants' citizenship, since DOL is not concerned with visa applications themselves, it is concerned only with *jobs*.

(2) As US CIS adjudicates H-1(b) petitions, it, too, prepares annual statistical reports. You can find them with a Google search on "Characteristics of H-1B Specialty Occupation Workers". The have a breakdown by country of birth and by occupation group, although not a cross tabulation. This is probably the best table for your purposes, since 1 petition = 1 worker (except that workers need new petitions when changing job or extending their stay).

(3) The State Dept has stas for visas issued at consulates abroad, with breakdown by applicant's citizenhip and by category (H, J, E, etc) : http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/law-and-policy/statistics/non-immigrant-visas.html , choose any table under "Nonimmigrant Visa Issuances by Visa Class and by Nationality". This is only for *visas*, not for in-the country change-of-status processing. There is no breakdown by specific occupation, since DOS is concerned with visa applicants, and not with the jobs per se. While most foreign workers would need to cross the US border, and thus to receive an entry visa, at some point before or during their period of authorized employment, the number-of-workers : number-of-visas ratio is obviously not exactly 1:1.

(4) USCIS has some statistics of its own at http://www.uscis.gov/tools/reports-studies/immigration-forms-data , but I don't see anything specifically relevant for H-1(b) petitions there. They do have the numbers for employment-based adjustment of status (to permanent residence) there, with breakdown by USCIS office (i.e. by US geography).

Ironically, as of 2009, the government itself apparently did not have a very good idea how many foreign workers actually *are* in the country at any given time, since there so many possible "lifecycle events" (such as "change of status") involved, besides the issuance of visa and the admission at the border. See https://cis.org/estimating-h1b-population-2-11 for some background and links...

О, точно - "Characteristics of H-1B Specialty Occupation Workers", that what I was looking for. Thank You !
