EOIR Releases FY 2011 Statistical Year Book; Includes Pending Caseload Numbers for Individual Immigration Courts

"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 past.”

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.
