Australia/ New Zealand migration, a tale of two charts

Over at Kiwiblog Mr. Farrar like to post charts showing a fall in migration to Australia, and although he doesn’t say it out loud, I think the idea is to stick it to the left by implying that the greater success of the Key govt is what is bringing people home.

When Labour are in govt their acolytes probably do the same thing when the figures suit them.

In fact its fairly simple to arrive at the truth behind these figures and I present the two charts below as proof of what really drives the immigration between Australia and New Zealand. Have a look and see if you can see any comparison between the Australian unemployment rate and the net immigration to NZ rate. Its mirrored in the departures line.
