Coast and Texas metro areas in America employed the highest number of 
H-1B visa workers, majority of them Indians, between 2010 and 2016, a 
Pew report has said, debunking the popular presumption that the Silicon 
Valley had such a distinction.

According to the Pew Research Centre, an
 American think-tank, about 247,900 H-1B visa approvals–29 per cent of 
the nation’s total–went to employers in the New York City metro area 
from fiscal 2010 to 2016, the most in recent years for which data are 
available at the metropolitan level.

“The employment of high-skilled foreign 
workers with H-1B visas has centered on large East Coast metropolitan 
areas for fiscal years 2010 to 2016. In addition, these foreign workers 
have made up a significant part of the workforces in several Texas metro
 areas,” it said in an analysis of the previously unpublished 
metro-level government data of H-1B visa approvals on Thursday.

The figures were obtained by the center through a public records request.

The Dallas and Washington metro areas 
got 74,000 and 64,800 approvals respectively, the next highest totals 
along with Boston’s 38,300 approvals.

The data, obtained from US Citizenship and Immigration Services, include details of those approved for an H-1B visa.

When looking at the footprint of 
high-skilled foreign workers by metro area, Texas’ College Station 
stands far above the rest, with about 32 H-1B approvals per 100 workers.

According to report, more than 99 per 
cent of the metro area’s H-1B approvals went to employees of Cognizant 
Technology Solutions Corporation, whose US headquarters are in College 

No other metro area had more than five H-1B approvals per 100 workers.

“The San Jose, California
 metro area, home of Silicon Valley, trailed the leading metro area on 
these measures, despite being home to some of the world’s most famous 
technology companies. The San Jose metro area had 22,200 H-1B approvals 
from fiscal 2010 to 2016, which amounted to two approvals per 100 
workers,” the report said.

The US government approved more than 859,600 applications in fiscal 2010-2016.

While nationwide, foreign workers 
approved for H-1B visas earned an average of USD 80,600 in fiscal 
2010-2016, Bridgeport in Connecticut had the highest average salary of 
USD 100,200 of all metro area, followed by Seattle with USD 98,100 and 
Phoenix USD 97,100.

In College Station, the Texas metro area
 with the greatest concentration of H-1B workers in its workforce, the 
average salary in 2010-2016 was USD 82,600, the report said.

About half (49 per cent) of H-1B 
approvals in recent years have gone to foreign workers with an advanced 
degree (Master’s, professional or doctorate) earned either in the US or 
internationally, it said.


The H1-B
 visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign
 workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical
