New Zealand Immigration Stats

As though I don't have anything to do  ;) I have sat down and crunched some number to try and get some figure for how many folks are leaving SA seeing as the SA government refuses to tell us.

I have used the stats sheets that NZIS publishes every fortnight to compile my findings :

From 16 Feb 06 to 22 Nov 06 a total of 13688 EOI's were selected worldwide. Using the precentages given for SA applications for each selection it works out to an average of 7.42% are SA'ns.

That gives me a total of roughly 1021 South African EOI's selected during this period.

The 13688 EOI's selected worldwide includes 30892 people = 2.26 people per EOI.

1021 SA EOI's * 2.26 = 2307 people over a 10 month period (Feb to Nov) = 231 people leaving for New Zealand every week = 33 people every single day.

Now from the stats in the 22 Nov 06 selection they show the running totols for the year. These stats show that about 10% of EOI's are rejected, so let's compensate for that in our figures.

33 people leaving every day minus 10% = 30 people leaving for New Zealand alone every single day.

I am sure we can safely assume this hold true for Oz, CA, USA and UK, probably more.

Let's total them together - 5 countries * 30 people per day = 150 people per day * 365 = 54750 people per year at an absolute minimum as I have not even considered any other countries.

To put this into perspective, Ellis Park Stadium can seat 64,150 people and Loftus Versveld seats 47,325 people.

No wonder they are battling to sell tickets for the rugby  ???

Found this on the Te Ara Encyclopedia :

In 1993, 958 South Africans became permanent residents. In 1994, this leapt to 4,224. Over the next decade permanent residency approvals totalled 37,382. By 2001 South Africans were the largest immigrant group after British, Australians, Samoans and Chinese.

Let's take 37,382 / 10 years = 3738.2 people per year
3738.2 / 12 months = 312 per month
312 / 30 days = 10 per day.

Using my previous post and this info, it is clear that the amount of people leaving now is even greater than before.

Not to mention skilled labour!  This is one of the reasons my DH is closing shop and moving on - he could make a killing here but because he battles with skilled labour it is killing him instead!!!!
I am a Travel consultant by trade and when I was in the industry I booked at least one family per week that were immigrating!  That was me on my own. 
It is frightening to realize how many people are leaving.
