The above report lists the top 100 Work City submitted by US emplloyer in fiscal year 2015. The H1B Visa Petitions is the number of Labor Condition Application(LCA) for H1B Visa. . The number includes new, renew and transfer of LCA. The Average Salary is the average proffered salary on LCA or Form 9035. Sometimes the visa sponsors(employers) does not enter a specific salary, but a salary range. Our algorithm uses the middle point of the range to calculate the average salary.

For Example, the first record on this report means that in fiscal year 2015 36,122 LCA submitted for H1B Visa are New York, NY. The average salary of those 36,122 LCA is $97,446.

*: The number of LCA includes renewed, transferred and cap-exempt LCA. Department of Labor(DOL) typically certifies more than 3 times the number of foreign work requests than the number of H-1B visas issued by USCIS.

A new LCA is needed if the foreigner worker changes his or her work location(even within the same state and same company), because the prevailing wage of the position depends on geographic location. However, if the new location is within the same Metropolitan Statistical Area or normal commuting distance, no new LCA is needed.
