2019 H1B Sponsorship Report Overview

This article is based off of our 2019 H1B Sponsorship Report. You can find more details on specific sponsorships or other information pertaining to the H1B, including our comprehensive H1B database, on our website in the International section.

This article focuses on the H1B Sponsorship Report Overview.


While there was an overall increase in the total number of H1B applications in 2019 from the previous year, the amount of business related applications decreased by around eight percent. As a result 2019 has seen a decrease in applications for many top job titles and functional areas compared to 2018. Most of the smaller changes can be attributed to yearly fluctuations in the market, but some changes, such as with the Business Analyst which had the biggest drop in applications out of our top job titles, has been steadily decreasing over the past few years. Functional areas have also seen a decrease across the board for the most part, albeit not as significant a decrease as many of the job titles were subject to.

All but one of the job titles in the top ten are in the $50k-$100k range, with Vice President making it into the $100k-$150k range. Moreover, three functional areas fall into that same range of $100k-$150k, those being Marketing Managers, Financial Managers, and General and Operations Managers. That being said, there was an overall increase in average salaries across the board for 2019 in almost all industries.

The top three most popular states on our list are the same as last year; New York, California and Texas. They each have 12087, 11892 and 4259 applications respectively and make up over half of all the business related applications for 2019.

All the data used in our report was obtained directly from the US Department of Labor. We analysed the data and condensed it, removing over 90% and over 600,000 applications, to end up with data which only pertained to MBA or business related profiles. Using this thoroughly filtered data, we created our 2019 H1B Sponsorship Report.


Our report is divided into four sections : USA Overview, Popular States, Popular Functional Areas and Selected Employers. For each section we provided the most up to date and relevant information to make sure you are as informed as possible to better enable you to make the best decisions for your career.
