Title: Annual Survey of Refugees.
OMB No.: 0970-0033
Description: The Annual Survey of Refugees collects information on the economic circumstances of a random sample of refugees, Amerasians, and entrants who arrived in the United States during the previous five years. The survey focuses on their training, labor force participation, and welfare utilization rates. Data are segmented by region of origin, State of resettlement, and number of months since arrival. From their responses, the Office of Refugees Resettlement 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.
Annual Burden Estimates:
|Instrument||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Average burden hours per response||Total burden hours|
|Form||2,000||1||.6666 (40 minutes)||1,333|
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,333.
