NZ 3rd on list of migrant's choice as immigration destinations

NZ third on list of migrants' choice

New Zealand's adult population would balloon to more than 11 million if it were to take in all adults who wish to settle here, a global survey by Gallup shows.

Using what it calls the Potential Net Migration Index (PNMI), New Zealand registered third, behind only Singapore and Saudi Arabia, as immigration destinations.

The index is calculated on the number of adults wishing to leave a country permanently subtracted from the estimated number who wish to immigrate to the country, as a proportion of the total population.
