Arrival  (ARRIVAL)

The term migratory movement1 is used for that section of total population movement which is due to migration (801-1). The total of arrivals2 of immigrants (802-3*) and departures3 of emigrants (802-4*) is called gross migration4 or the volume of migration4. Net migration5 is the difference between the total number of persons arriving and the total number leaving; it is also referred to as the balance of migration5. If the number entering exceeds the number leaving, there is net immigration6 in the reverse case there is net emigration7.
