H-1B Program Data

Current H-1B Program Data

The Office of Foreign Labor Certification has begun releasing program disclosure data on a quarterly basis on their OFLC Case Disclosure Data page. Data for program years 2008 and newer can be accessed there.

This page contains archived information older than program year 2008. It will no longer have the most recent data available.

Archived H-1B Program Data

A Labor Condition Application (LCA) is used by employers as supporting evidence for the petition for an H-1B visa. Only first issuance H-1B visas are subject to the legislated numeric limitation. DOL disclosure data does not indicate the employer's intended use for the LCA.

This archive includes data from the LCA E-File online system or via the automated fax system. Data is available for both systems as separate files. By 2004 90 percent of H-1B applications were e-filed.

Notice: Employer-specific case information that appears on FLCDataCenter.com was provided to ETA by employers who submitted foreign labor certification applications. These are not employer responses to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Employment Statistics survey. The Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) Occupational Employment Statistics program provides estimates used to assist in setting the wage levels in the FLC wage library. However, the Bureau of Labor Statistics does not provide ETA with the wage rates reported to BLS by individual businesses. The identity of respondents and the information that they report to BLS is kept in strict confidence in accordance with Bureau of Labor Statistics Data Integrity Guidelines and with the Confidentiality Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act (CIPSEA) of 2002.

Download H-1B Disclosure Data

The data are available for download by fiscal year (October to September) in Microsoft Access or comma delimited text format. To speed up the download process the data are in ZIP files, however the files are still very large, and can take 2 hours or more to download using a dial-up connection. A ZIP file utility is necessary to extract the files. How to view Zip files.
