Title: Annual Survey of Refugees (ASR).

OMB No.: 0970-0033.

Description: The Refugee Act of 1980, and the Refugee Assistance amendments enacted in 1982 and 1986, stress the achievement of employment and self-sufficiency by refugees as soon as possible after their arrival in the U.S. The Annual Survey of Refugees collects information on the economic circumstances of a random sample of refugees, Amerasians, and entrants who arrived in the U.S. during the previous five years focusing on their education, training, labor force participation, and welfare utilization rates. From their responses, ORR reports on the economic adjustment of refugees to the American economy. These data are used by Congress in its annual deliberations of refugee admissions and funding and by program managers in formulating policies for the future direction of the Refugee Resettlement Program.

Respondents: Approximately 2,000 refugees.
