r = revised
 
* The September - December 2001 arrivals data has been revised as the final estimate. See explanation in note 2.
 
1 Total all countries is the sum of Canada, Mexico and all overseas.
2 North America includes Canada and Mexico only.
3 Canada and Mexico figures are subject to revision. Both figures are based on survey research from data obtained from their respective governments and therefore rounded to the nearest thousand.
4 Mexico air data is based upon the Immigration & Naturalization Service I-94 form.
5 Overseas is all countries except Canada and Mexico.
 
* Note 2: The 2001 monthly arrivals for September - December 2001 has been revised, as will the 2002 arrivals data. The reason for the revisions was to ensure the 2001 and 2002 arrivals data are comparable to past arrivals data. Shortly after September 11, 2001, the Immigration & Naturalization Service implemented a policy that required all passengers to and through (transit passengers) the U.S. to complete an I-94 arrivals form. The transit passengers have been eliminated from the arrival counts thus ensuring the arrivals data bases are comparable.
 
The overseas arrivals data is from the INS I-94 form. To learn more about this program, go to: https://travel.trade.gov/research/programs/i94/index.html
