Proposed Projects

    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 (U.S.) 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 U.S. (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 the ORR 
statistician, who then prepares a summary report which is included in 
ORR's Annual Report to Congress. The primary use of 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: State, Local or Tribal.
