Data Series:

    * Between 2005 and 2006, the number of metro areas included in the data doubled. Therefore, the value in the median metro area (the midpoint of the data) declined. For median metro area, compare 2006 onward; individual metro areas can be compared from 2002 onward (with caution!). Numbers are for new receipients of green cards, not total legal permanent residents.

    Years Available: 2002–2018

    General Notes: *National total includes Puerto Rico, which is not listed separately. Median calculated assuming that suppressed values have a value of 2, which is not true in all cases. **Numbers are for new recipients of green cards, not total legal permanent residents. A legal permanent resident (LPR) or “green card” recipient is defined by immigration law as a person who has been granted lawful permanent residence in the United States. A # symbol indicates the following: Data values of 1 or 2 suppressed to protect privacy. A number range cannot be given for suppressed data, because some higher values are suppressed to prevent the inference of values of 1 or 2, to protect privacy. A ^ symbol indicates the following: Value includes only Asia, due to suppression of Oceania value. Regional totals do not match the sum of metro areas since many persons obtaining legal permanent status are not located in Core-Based Statistical Areas. Asia includes Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Burma, Cambodia, China, Cyprus, East Timor, Georgia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanon, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Nepal, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Syria, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Yemen.
