Abstract: This data collection contains information on the characteristics of aliens who became legal permanent residents of the United States in fiscal year 1972 (July 1971 through June 1972). Data are presented for two types of immigrants. The first category, new arrivals, arrived from outside the United States with valid immigrant visas issued by the United States Department of State. Those in the second category, adjustments, were already in the United States with temporary status and were adjusted to legal permanent residence through petition to the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. Variables include port of entry, month and year of admission, class of admission, and state and area to which immigrants were admitted. Demographic information such as age, sex, marital status, occupation, country of birth, country of last permanent residence, and nationality is also provided.
