The gap gets narrower


The July data is out. The Australia annual data is fascinating.

  • 22,620 people arrived from Australia in the last year, including 15,050 NZers returning home
  • Two years ago in the year to July 12, only 14,040 arrived.
  • Only 29,770 people left to Australia in the last year.
  • Two years ago in the year to July 12, 53,910 departed to Australia.
  • The net loss to Australia in the year to July 2012 was 39,870 and in the last year was just 7,150.
  • In the last two months the net loss to Australia has been under 100 a month which is under three a day!

I await opposition parties demanding we stop Australians migrating here, and stop New Zealanders returning home!
