DHS/ALL/PIA-071 Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) Statistical Data Production and Reporting

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) is responsible for carrying out two statutory requirements: 1) collecting and disseminating to Congress and the public information useful in evaluating the social, economic, environmental, and demographic impact of immigration laws; and 2) establishing standards of reliability and validity for immigration statistics collected by the Department’s operational Components. To meet these requirements, OIS collects immigration-related data from across DHS and other federal immigration agencies, prepares the data for statistical purposes, and creates a variety of statistical products to inform the public, Congress, and Department leadership on key trends in immigration to the United States. OIS is conducting this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) as it collects and uses personally identifiable information (PII) to create its statistical products to inform the public on use of its PII and demonstrate how OIS mitigates privacy risks.
