Title: Refugee State-of-Origin Report.

OMB No.: 0970-0043.

Description: The information collection of the ORR-11 (Refugee State-of-Origin Report) is designed to satisfy the statutory requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act (the Act). Section 412(a)(3) of the Act requires the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to compile and maintain data on the secondary migration of refugees within the United States, after arrival.

In order to meet this legislative requirement, ORR requires each State to submit an annual count of the number of refugees who were initially resettled in another State. The State does this by counting the number of refugees with Social Security numbers indicating residence in another State at the time of arrival in the United States. (The first three digits of the Social Security number indicate the State of residence of the applicant.)

Data submitted by the States are compiled and analyzed by an ORR statistician, who then prepares a summary report, which is included in ORR's Annual Report to Congress. The primary use of the data is to quantify and analyze refugee secondary migration among the 50 States. ORR uses these data to adjust its refugee arrival totals in order to calculate the ORR social services allocation.

Respondents: States.
