I suggest taking a look at the Visa Bulletin found here:

You can then look up the category you applied under as well as the priority date for that category to see if your priority date is current.

If you are over 21 or married, you might be in a different category than your brother, which may be why he has already immigrated & you have not.

You will need to locate your family-based category and your priority date, and consult the June 2013 visa bulletin to see how much longer it will take before you can get your immigrant visa interview.
