Aussies still flowing in

Stats NZ reports:

Annual net gains from Australia continued to increase, with 800 migrants in the December 2015 year. This was the highest net gain since the October 1991 year, and the third month in a row to show an annual net gain of migrants from Australia.

That’s net inwards of 27 people a day from Australia. It used to be net outwards to Australia of 110 a day.

As you can see we have both twice as many people migrating from Australia, but also only half as many migrating to Australia.
