FY 2011 H-1B Count

Once again, the sluggish economy can be seen in the H-1B usage numbers.  As of 9/3/2010, USCIS announced that approximately 36,600 H-1B cap-subject petitions were receipted.  It has also receipted 13,400 for aliens with advanced degrees.  This stands in stark contrast to economically strong years when the H-1B cap was reached within 24 hours of the April 1 opening.
