DATA NOTES

This publication contains overseas movement data which should not be interpreted as 'persons'. See paragraph 5 of the Explanatory Notes for more detail.

The statistics in this publication have been rounded to the nearest 100 for short-term movements and to the nearest 10 for permanent and long-term movements. As a result, sums of the components may not add exactly to totals. Analysis featured in this publication is based on unrounded data. Calculations made on rounded data may differ to those published.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

A feature article, INTERNATIONAL MOVEMENTS - 2009-10 is included in this issue.


REVISIONS

Annual seasonal adjustment reanalysis: The seasonally adjusted and trend series have been updated following the annual review of the seasonal adjustment process. This review provides an opportunity to confirm the extent to which movements are affected by seasonal or irregular influences. As a result, the seasonally adjusted and trend estimates of a number of series have been revised.

Unreliable seasonal adjustment: In using the seasonally adjusted series, care should be exercised due to the difficulties associated with reliably estimating the seasonal pattern for the following short-term resident departure series: Other North-East Asia, United Arab Emirates and French Polynesia. These series will be revised during the next annual seasonal adjustment reanalysis.
