Permanent immigration to the United States rose 2% in the US Fiscal Year 2009 (1 October 2008 through 30 September 2009), with more than 1.13 million people receiving lawful permanent residency status. The previous year had seen a 5% increase. Admissions under the employment‐based preferences category, on the other hand, fell 13%, to 144 000. Almost half (45%) of the employment‐based visas went to principal applicant, with the remainder for their family members. 92% of those granted permanent residence based on their employment were already in the United States on a temporary visa.
