Washington sources reported that according to the Pew Research Center, an American think tank, about 247,900 H-1B visa approvals 29% 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.
As per report "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 and meanwhile in addition, these foreign workers have made up a significant part of the work forces in several Texas metro areas," and it said in an analysis of the previously unpublished metro-level government data of H-1B visa approvals.
Meanwhile 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. Further the data, obtained from US Citizenship and Immigration Services, include details of those approved for an H-1B visa. Moreover 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.
