changed, as have the content, format, and title of the annual publication. Currently, immigration data are published in the Yearbook of Immigration Statistics by the Office of Immigration Statistics in the Policy Directorate of the Department of Homeland Security. The 2008 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics consists of a compendium of tables organized by subject matter, including: Legal Permanent Residents (Tables 1 to 12) Legal permanent residents (LPRs) are persons who have been granted lawful permanent residence in the United States. They are also known as “green card” recipients Refugees and Asylees (Tables 13 to 19) Refugees and asylees are persons who sought residence in the United States in order to avoid persecution in their country of origin. Persons granted refugee status applied for admission while outside the United States. Persons granted asylum applied either at a port of entry or at some point after their entry into the United States. Naturalizations (Tables 20 to

24) Naturalizations refer to persons aged 18 and over who become citizens of the United States. Most legal permanent residents are eligible to apply for naturalization within five years after obtaining LPR status. Nonimmigrant Admissions (Tables 25 to 32) Nonimmigrant admissions refer to arrivals of persons who are authorized to stay in the United States for a limited period of time. Most nonimmigrants enter the United States as tourists or business travelers, but some come to work, study, or engage in cultural exchange programs. Enforcement Actions (Tables 33 to 37) Enforcement actions include the apprehension, removal and return of foreign nationals who are in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act. These actions occur at the borders of the United States, in the interior of the country, and at designated sites outside the United States. Technical Data Notes The data presented in the 2008 Yearbook were obtained primarily from workload and case tracking systems of the U.S

Department of Homeland Security Definitions by subject matter and information on data sources are available in the publications section of the website of the Office of Immigration Statistics at: http://www. dhs.gov/immigrationstatistics Note that numbers appearing for a given year may change in subsequent Yearbooks due to updating of data series. Confidentiality The Office of Immigration Statistics is committed to protecting the identity of individuals reported in the Yearbook of Immigration Statistics. All data tables, therefore, have been edited to avoid divulging information about any individual by either direct or indirect means. The practice of cell suppression has been employed by placing a “D” (disclosure standards not met) in any cell that would show a count of 1 or 2, or in any associated cell that might be used to reveal such a count through calculation. The process of suppression does not change the marginal totals, so the integrity of the data is not affected. Office
