      All data is based on petitions approved during the fiscal year for both initial employment and continuing employment. Petitions approved in a fiscal year may be filed in previous fiscal years. Per USCIS best practices, units of less than 10 beneficiaries are masked to limit the possibility of the de-anonymization of data. 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. Missing Education means the USCIS electronic data storage system does not capture the education field. The median salary is based on data reported by the petitioner in the petition and may include part-time employment or may be reported inaccurately. Because USCIS data systems do not include hours worked, we are unable to identify salaries earned from part-time employment. Instead 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. We excluded employers without tax identification numbers in our system. The H-1B petition may be used to sponsor an alien currently in a different nonimmigrant classification, or with no classification if outside the U.S., for an initial period of H-1B employment (see “initial employment” column below), or to extend or change the authorized stay of an alien currently in H-1B status (see “continuing employment” column below). An employer may file an H-1B petition to sponsor an alien who currently has H-1B nonimmigrant status working for another employer or to amend a previously approved petition; these petitions are counted in the “continuing employment” column below. Initial employment includes both cap-subject and cap-exempt petitions.
