    New Zealand's net migration rate remains well ahead of the UK and United States

    New Zealand's net migration rate remains well ahead of the UK and United States


    Stats NZ says migration increased New Zealand's population by about 11 more people for every one-thousand already living here.

    That equates to about 56-thousand - against a population of 4.9 million.

    This rate is similar to Australia's migration rate, but three times that of the US and Britain.

    Meanwhile, visitor arrivals from Australia have reached a new high.

    More than 1.5 million arrived here from Australia in the year to September, up 3.8-percent on the same period last year.
