Numerous factors are considered by USCIS to determine the financial health of the institution and its compliance with EB-5 regulations. Job calculation differs when investing directly or through a regional center. USCIS economists examine the economic report and business plan to draw their conclusions, including job creation or preservation. Where the investment only sustains current employees, but does not create new full-time jobs, it does not meet the job requirement unless the investment is in a "troubled business". A troubled business is one that accrues a net loss for 1 or 2 years exceeding 20 percent of its net worth.
