Quote:

(a) "WASHINGTON—The number of visas issued to foreign students fell markedly last year amid stricter immigration policies, State Department data show

(b) "In the year ended Sept 30, 2017, the State Department issued 393,573 student visas, known as F-1s. That was down 17%  from the previous [2016] fiscal year and nearly 40% below the 2015 peak. The drop-off was particularly dramatic among Indian students this year [fiscal year 2017], with a 28* decline in visas from the second-largest feeder of foreign students at US colleges.

"There was also a big drop from China -- down 24% last year and the No 1 source of foreign students in the US -- but much of that reduction can be traced to a 2014 change in visa terms for Chinese students. Their visas are now good for five years, instead of one, meaning there are fewer visa renewals but not necessarily fewer students. [But number of Indian students in US should drop because they did not face such a change.]

"[The above is about percentage, but the following is about real numbers.] are about 78,000 fewer [F-1] visas issued in fiscal year 2017 compared with 2016 for all countries, including about 35,000 fewer from China. Setting aside visas from China [due to US visa change for that nation', the overall drop was 13% from 2016 to 2017.

My comment:
(a) There is no need to read the rest.
(b) This report is about number of F-1 visas issued in 2017 fiscal year only -- not how many foreign students in US.
(c) talent (n):
"1.1 : people possessing natural aptitude or skill  <I signed all the talent in Rome>
(count[able] noun)  <Simon is a talent to watch>"
