"The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) today announced
that it has released its Fiscal Year 2011 Statistical Year Book.
The book is a representation of data that EOIR tracked and compiled
during the previous fiscal year. The figures and tables contained
within the book examine respondents’ cases by nationality, language, and
disposition, and provide detailed information surrounding asylum cases.
In addition to the standard information, this year’s book includes
pending caseload numbers broken down by immigration court.
“The addition of individual immigration court pending caseload
statistics to this year’s Statistical Year Book continues to build on
EOIR’s efforts to consistently provide greater access to data and
increased transparency into the agency’s work,” said EOIR Director Juan
P. Osuna. “Our hopes are that this additional information will make the
FY 2011 Statistical Year Book an even more useful tool than in years
In September 2011, EOIR convened an internal data working group to
evaluate the collection and analysis of data to assist in EOIR’s
constant efforts to improve future Statistical Year Books.
Hard copies of the publication are not available to the public, but a user-friendly version is available at http://www.justice.gov/eoir/statspub/fy11syb.pdf." - EOIR, Feb. 21, 2012.
