When David Rubman pinned USCIS down on how many H-1Bs were being issued each year and learned that they were dramatically undercounting, the appropriate next step would be for USCIS to figure out why this has been happening and explain what they will do to ensure it doesn't continue to happen. Instead they've responded by just issuing new numbers which don't make a lot of sense. I understand USCIS is now including amendments in their data which are completely irrelevant and will skew the approval data to make it sound like the approval rate is a lot higher than it is.
Here is David's latest correspondence with USCIS.
