ABOUT THIS RELEASE
This publication is part of the Demography Working Paper series.
This document outlines statistical requirements for overseas arrivals and departures data and covers the major uses, item justification and outward passenger card. The outward passenger card is specifically addressed, as questions on the justification for such card have been raised in the context of a proposal to combine Australian and New Zealand passenger cards.
Information provided by incoming and outgoing passenger cards currently represents the major source of overseas arrivals and departures data.
