Re: Collaboration on visa quota data/analysis The CIS has said that they have preadjudicated about 155,000 cases. They have given us a spreadsheet that purports to show the number of pending AOS cases, broken down by priority date, country of charge, and preference. That spreadsheet totals about 220,000 cases. Other data on the CIS site (CIS data) puts the total number of pending cases at about 300,000. So, what do we have? Well, assuming that all of this data is more or less accurate, we know that there are about 300,000 pending EB AOS cases. Out of that group of 300,000, about 220,000 of them have been sorted and categorized by PD, preference, and country, while the remaining 80,000 havent. Out of the group of 220,000, about 155,000 have been preapproved - but we don't know which 155,000. That is, we don't know which categories, countries, and priority dates will be affected by the pre-approvals. In other words, we don't know squat.
