Transition probabilities of undergraduate F-1 students to OPT, H-1B, and leaving the country (Figure A.2 in Paper)
Employer callback rates for US and Chinese colleges by selectivity and job pay decile in China (Figure 4 and A.4 in Paper)
SAT scores of US vs international students by region, composition of international students by SAT score by year, composition of high-achieving international students by year (Figures 4 to 9, Table 1 in Paper)
F-1 visa and B visa refusal rates by region by year (See Figures 10 and A.6 in Paper)
Public Data on High-Skilled Immigration and International Education in the US
Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS)
New and stock of international undergrad students by school by year
Stock of international graduate students (sum of MA and PhD) by school by year
Degrees conferred to international students by degree level by major by school by year
Graduation and transfer rates of international undergrad students by school by year
Notes:: International students are defined as temporary visa holders (including F-1 and J-1). Data are self-reported by schools to annual surveys conducted by NCES. Responses are mandatory for all Title IV postsecondary institutions. Fall enrollment.
Visa issuance by visa class by year by place of origin (1997--current)
Visa refusals and workloads by visa class by year (2013--current)
B visa refusal rate by year (2006--current)
Notes: F-1 and J-1 visa issuance measure neither new nor stock of international students. First, Visa validation length varies by place of origin, time, and program of study. Second, even if an F-1 visa expires, students already in the US do not need to renew visas until they travel internationally (as long as their degree program has not ended).
NSF — Survey of Graduate Students and Postdoctorates in Science and Engineering (GSS)
Stock of international graduate students by sex by school by year (1972--current)
Stock of international postdocs by sex by school by year (1972--current)
Notes: The GSS covers all US institutions granting research-based master's degrees or doctorates in science, engineering, or selected health (SEH) fields and is as of the fall of the survey year. International students are defined as temporary visa holders. Degree level is available starting year 2017.
New international doctoral recipients by field by school by year (1958--current)
Notes: Census of all doctoral degree recipients, but does not include professional degrees such as JD. The SED is mandated by the National Science Foundation Act of 1950 and the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010. Individual data on detailed personal, educational and postgraduation plans are available through application for restricted data.
