International migration statistics give the
latest outcomes-based measure of migration, which includes estimates of
migrants entering or leaving New Zealand.
The comparisons between the April 2021 and
2020 months and years use the latest provisional estimates for each period.
The provisional estimates have 95 percent
confidence intervals (±) beside them – the wider the interval, the greater
the uncertainty about the estimate. However, these intervals reflect the
model uncertainty, not the extent of future revisions to provisional data.
Provisional migration estimates are revised
each month until they are finalised after 16 months. Migration
data transformation has more information
about the migration estimates, including the 12/16-month rule.
