    Default Kiwis flock across the Ditch

    Kiwis flock across the Ditch
    Wednesday, 22 October 2008

    The number of New Zealanders heading to live in Australia has reached a 30-year high, according to new figures.

    For the year there was a net outflow to Australia of 33,900, compared with 26,200 in the September 2007 year, says Statistics New Zealand.

    The net outflow to Australia was higher than previous peaks of 33,700 in the January 1989 year and 33,400 in the December 1979 year.

    The net outflow of 2400 permanent and long term (PLT) migrants to Australia in September was up from the outflow of 1800 a year earlier.

    Overall, New Zealand's annual migration net gain has fallen to its lowest level in nearly seven years.

    In the year to September, 86,700 people arrived in this country on a PLT basis, while 82,300 left.

    The resulting net PLT gain of 4400 was down from 8300 in the September 2007 year, and the lowest since the October 2001 year.

    The number of arrivals was actually up 3700 or 4 percent from the previous year, but that was overshadowed by the 7600 or 10 percent increase in departures.

    For the month of September the net PLT gain of 1700 people was down from 2200 a year earlier. Seasonally adjusted PLT arrivals matched departures last month.
