Comment: Green Card Trackers

Immigrants from India and China have a long waiting time for their Green Cards. It is difficult to estimate waiting times for EB-2 and EB-3 categories for China, and even harder to estimate waiting times for India. We looked at the patterns of how the waiting times in the past have moved to project the patterns forward, using linear as well as exponential projections. Please find the results for EB-2 and EB-3 categories for India here, and for EB-2 and EB-3 categories for China here.
