Nonimmigrants Residing in the United States

The reports below present estimates of the size and characteristics of the resident nonimmigrant population in the United States. The term 'resident nonimmigrant' refers to foreign nationals who are legally admitted into the United States for specific, temporary purposes and whose classes of admission are associated with residency (e.g., students and temporary workers, as opposed to tourists and business travelers). The characteristics analyzed include category of admission, country of citizenship, age, sex, and destination state. The estimates are derived from U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) administrative records of nonimmigrant arrivals and departures.

Additional information on Nonimmigrant Admissions are found on the Nonimmigrant Admissions topic page.
