About RIMS II Job-calculation methodology & issues


RIMS II methodology is just one methodology, but nevertheless, it is a very widely-used job calculation (a better terminology would be a "job estimating") methodology. Official website of Bureau of Economic Analysis, a division of U.S. Department of Commerce: www.bea.gov

It should be noted that the recent USCIS Neufeld guidance memo dated June 17, 2009 has arguably indicated a preference for the RIMS II methodology over other job-calculation methodologies. See the Neufeld guidance memo at www.eb-5center.com/node/382.
