USCIS has just announced that they are launching a new website which is intended to provide new data reports covering agency performance in a number of areas. The website can be accessed at http://www.uscis.gov/data/.
Data Reports Available
Currently, there are ten data sets available on the website. Four of the data sets will be updated monthly; they include processing times and performance data for Form N-400, Application for Naturalization; performance data for Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status; and statistics on Form I-914, Application for T Nonimmigrant Status, and Form I-918, Petition for U Nonimmigrant Status. Forms I-914(T) and I-918(U) are used for victims of trafficking and victims of crime.
Additionally, information about the total number of receipts and approvals by quarter and year-to-date for all form types will be published quarterly.
While we applaud USCIS’s efforts to provide more information and transparency to the general public, and while we recognize that this website makes an initial step towards giving the general public an overview of USCIS’s operations, the information published on the website is somewhat limited in scope. We hope that USCIS would use this website as an opportunity to provide more information about its operations, processing times and procedures.
