Recently Immigration Daily featured Gary Endelman's article entitled "Fall Guy: U.S. Immigration and the Myth of Offshoring" which contained misleading figures on the numbers of H-1Bs for Indians in 2002. These numbers do not coincide with the numbers provided by the BCIS, which is the only official accounting the US provides, no other source is valid. This report provides a specific count of H-1Bs issued to Indians.
Note that the state department has pre-released seemingly low counts in the past which have in all cases been shown to be wrong. People love to quote the state department's 'interim' numbers because they argue the case of declining use, when the truth is that the State department for whatever reason, is releasing 'non-official' numbers which don't ever match the official reports.

Editor's Note: The links in the letter above refer to BCIS statistics concerning "Immigrants". This term is a term of art in immigration law and excludes H-1B visas entirely, since H-1B visas are "Non-immigrant" visas.
