Statistic of the Day

 Statistics New Zealand released latest migration data yesterday. This fact is incredibly sobering:

From April 2020 to November 2020 there were 77,600 arrivals and 133,000 departures, compared to 4.44 million arrivals and 4.43 million departures in the same period in 2019.

There are lots of interesting graphs as well.

I often muse that if a historian was looking back from the future and saw just the graphs (these and the very many others displaying economic activity,etc) they'd be totally non-plussed at what could have caused such a catastrophic and rapid impact. I'd have guessed at a massive war ... but that would leave more questions than answers.
