* The 2001 monthly arrivals for September - December 2001 have been revised and are now final arrival figures. All twelve months of 2002 have also been adjusted and the arrival figures have been revised downward. The reason for the revisions were due to a Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) policy change after September 11, 2001. Starting in September 2001, transit passengers as well as visitors to the United States must complete an INS I-94 entry form. To keep the data comparable and provide information on only travelers who visited the country, the transit passengers must be deleted from the arrival counts. So, OTTI obtained additional INS data to eliminate the transit passengers from the arrival counts. This was done by matching the arrival record to the departure record for all travelers to the USA. By reviewing the length of stay, transit passengers could be eliminated from the counts. The revised data is not directly comparable to previous arrival counts.
