CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Introduction of breaks in short-term resident departures trend estimates
- Breaks have been introduced in trend estimates for short-term resident departures to Japan and consequently to the trend for Total North-East Asia and the Total, due to the effects of the major earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011 in Japan and subsequent nuclear radiation exposure incidents. For further details, please see Explanatory Notes, paragraph 25.
