REBUILD OF THE OVERSEAS ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES (OAD) SYSTEM AT THE ABS


Currently, the ABS is working on a rebuild of the OAD system. The aim is to improve the quality of OAD data and improve the quality of the imputations being used within the processing system. As OAD data is the major input for estimating net overseas migration (NOM), it is envisaged that the quality of characteristics available within the NOM collection will also improve. One of the main improvements is the imputation for country of birth, in particular that for New Zealand citizens. The current plan is to release these improvements into production with the release of Overseas Arrivals and Departures, January 2013 (cat. no. 3401.0) in March 2013.
