Source: USCIS, data as of October 25, 2017.

  1. All data is based on approved petitions during the H1B 2017 fiscal year.

  2. It is possible that H1B petitions approved in 2017 fiscal year may have been filed in previous fiscal years.

  3. Data for applications less than 10 has not been published.

  4. While some company names may appear multiple times, USCIS does not combine companies even
    where the names are the same because in all cases the employer tax identification numbers are different.

  5. Missing Education means the education field is not captured by the USCIS electronic data storage system.

  6. Average salary is based on data reported by the petitioner in the petition and may include part time
    employment. Because USCIS data systems do not include hours worked, they are unable to identify salaries earned from part-time employment.

  7. In lieu of the required degree a beneficiary may qualify based on a combination of education, training, and/or progressively responsible experience in the specialty that is equivalent to the completion of such a degree, and recognition of expertise in the specialty through progressively responsible positions directly related to the specialty.
