Title: Annual Survey of Refugees (Form ORR-9).

OMB No.: 0970-0033.

Description: The Annual Survey of Refugees collects information on the social and economic circumstances of a random sample of refugees, Amerasians, and entrants who arrived in the United States in the five years prior to the date of the survey. The survey focuses on the refugees training, labor force participation, and welfare utilization rates. Dates are segmented by region of origin, State of resettlement, and number of months since arrival. From the responses, the Office of Refugee Resettlement reports on the economic adjustment of refugees to the American economy. These data are used by Congress in its annual deliberations for refugee admissions and funding and by program managers in formulating policies for the future direction of the Refugee Resettlement Program.

Respondents: Refugees, entrants, Amerasians, and Havana parolees.
