If we keep considering all these facts, the guesstimation keeps getting changed.
One of my close friend also has EB2 approved labour & 140 , but not applying because he is single.3 other friends all Masters from US didn't even apply for GC yet due to various reasons.

Here's my estimate regarding the expected I-485 filings for July 2007 based on the approved LC petition data provided by DOL. See link below (Thanks ! DreamGC)

http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?k...rpRSbOSVaat9ew

LC Approvals (Expected 485 filings in July 2007)

2007: 50000(50000) Estimated since data unavailabe
2006: 79782 (79782)
2005: 6133 (6133)
2004: 43582 (34866) 80% will file in July, 20% filed earlier
2003: 62912 (31456) 50% will file in July. The rest filed earlier.
2002: 79784 (Nil) Since more than 95% would have filed 485 earlier.

I am ignoring anything before 2002.

If you add up the numbers in parentheses the total is 202,236 - primary applicants. Assuming an average family size of 2 gives us 404,472 give or take 10%

Any thoughts.
