NET OVERSEAS MIGRATION: CATEGORY JUMPING COMPONENT

In Demography Working Paper 2000/4 - Category Jumping : Trends, Demographic Impact and Measurement Issues it was recommended that the term 'category jumping' be replaced with a different and less confusing term. A suggested alternative was 'change in intended duration'.

It is proposed to adopt 'duration category change' or 'duration change'. Comments on this terminology are welcome and should be sent to valerie.pearson@abs.gov.au
