How many have filled out an I-864 to sponsor an immigrant or opened their home to a refugee family?

It's an affidavit for support you can get it on line Homepage forms it's 10 pages. Get two or three or copy it in case you make a mistake.

When filling out form I-864 for a Fiance(e) Visa, what is the difference between doing (1) co-sponsorship and (2) including a house member in co-payment of the minimum financial requirement (i.e., attaching the form I-864a to I-864)?

You don't do I-864 for a fiance visa. You do an I-134.

How do I fill out the Form 102 (ICAI) for an articleship? Can anyone provide a sample format?

Form 102 serves as a contract between you and your Principal at work. It becomes binding only when its Franked.Franking is nothing but converting it into a Non Judicial Paper. So u'll be filling in your name, your articleship period and other details and you and your boss(principal) will sign it on each page and at the end. It need not be sent to the institute , one copy is for you and another for your Principal .Nothin to worry..And while filling the form if you have any query , just see the form filled by old articles. The record will be with your Principal or ask your seniors.

How should a petitioner fill in Part 5 Household Size of the form I-864 Affidavit of support if he would like to sponsor 2 principal immigrants at the same time? Each family has 4 members.

Each principal beneficiary (and their family) is petitioned with a separate I-130 petition, and each I-130 petition has a separate I-864 Affidavit of Support. Each family’s I-864 does not count the other family in the “family members” in Part 3 (note that it says “Do not include any relative listed on a separate visa petition.”).If the two I-864s are filed at the same time for the two families, then each family’s I-864’s household size (Part 5) would just count the number of people immigrating in that family, which is 4 (item 1), the petitioner (item 2), and the petitioner’s spouse (item 3), dependent children (item 4), and other tax dependents (item 5), if there are any. It would not count anyone from the other family.On the other hand, if one I-864 is filed for one family, and that family has already immigrated before the second I-864 is filed for the other family, then the first family’s members will need to be counted in Part 5 item 6 (people sponsored on Form I-864 who are now lawful permanent residents) for the second family’s I-864.

What percentage of a total group has to fill out a poll to make it a representative sample?

I’m used to dealing with enormous population in which you don’t look at the percent, but at total absolute numbers.Depends on the margin of error you can accept as well as the proportion you might expect. For example… if you are doing a poll between two candidates for public office and its a 50/50 chance, you can:Error = 1.96 * sqrt (0.5*0.5/Number of people)Number of people = 1.96^2*.5*.5/Error^2Let’s say you want no more than a 3% error. Do the math, you’ll need about 1068 people.Now let’s say you want no more than 3% error but one of the candidates is a neo-Nazi. So now instead of 50/50, maybe you expect a 10/90.Number of people = 1.96*2*0.1*0.9/Error^2The sample drops to 385.As the expected results get close to 0, the number of people you need will drop.Just one other caution - beyond the math, you need to make sure that your sample is large enough to capture the variability of the population. If you’re polling an area that is 100% white rural people, there isn’t much variability. If you’re polling an area that is multiracial, multigender, whatever, there’s going to be a lot of variability in your population. Even if the math says to get a certain number of people, variability = less precision and in those circumstances I would get more than the math requires - just to be on the safe side.
