Yearbook of Immigration Statistics 2016

The 2016 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics is a compendium of tables that provide data on foreign nationals who are granted lawful permanent residence (i.e., immigrants who receive a “green card”), admitted as temporary nonimmigrants, granted asylum or refugee status, or are naturalized. The Yearbook also presents data on immigration enforcement actions, including apprehensions and arrests, removals, and returns.

Yearbook tables are released as they become available. A final PDF is released in September of the following fiscal year.

In addition to the Yearbook, the Office of Immigration Statistics' Annual Flow Reports and Population Estimates provide text, tables, and charts on lawful permanent residents, refugees and asylees, nonimmigrant admissions, naturalizations, enforcement actions, and the unauthorized population. The Annual Flow Reports and Population Estimates have replaced the text chapters in earlier editions of the Yearbook.

To view the individual data tables on topics such as "lawful permanent residents," "naturalizations," or "nonimmigrant admissions," click on the underlined link to each table title. The  entire Yearbook in pdf format corresponding Excel files are available at the bottom of this page.
