Aliens Expelled and Aliens Removed by Administrative Reason for Removal: 2000 to 2005

Added By Infochimps

The Statistical Abstract files are distributed by the US Census Department as Microsoft Excel files. These files have data mixed with notes and references, multiple tables per sheet, and, worst of all, the table headers are not easily matched to their rows and columns.

A few files had extraneous characters in the title. These were corrected to be consistent. A few files have a sheet of crufty gibberish in the first slot. The sheet order was shuffled but no data were changed.

The tables that were changed (this is table 518):

0166 0257 0362 0429 0445 0446 0459 0461 0462 0464 0465 0466 0467
0469 0479 0480 0481 0482 0483 0484 0485 0486 0487 0559 0628 0629

This dataset consists of a table of 30 rows and 10 columns.

As of the end of September. The administrative reason for formal removal is the legal basis for removal. Some aliens who are criminals may be removed under a different administrative reason (or charge) for the convenience of the government.

    required to depart and voluntary departures not under docket control;
    first recorded in 1927. Beginning FY 2004, voluntary departures verified
    include both Deportable Alien Control System (DACS) cases under docket control
    and Performance Analysis System (PAS) Border Patrol voluntary departures
    verified-cases not under docket or aliens processed for removal under
    safeguard. The latter is used as a measure of border patrol voluntary
    departures verified-cases not under docket. In FY 2004, complete Detention
    and Removal Office district level figures for voluntary departures-cases
    not under docket are unavailable in PAS and as a result are excluded for
    that year. Prior to FY 2004, the reporting of voluntary departures verifed included
    all locations, Border Patrol Sectors and districts.
