This report uses two methods to estimate the levels of out-migration from the Western Cape. The first is based on data collected in a survey conducted in 2001. The second derives estimates of the levels of out-migration as the difference between the in-migration as estimated from the survey and the net in-migration as estimated from efforts to reconstruct the numbers in the population as at the census date in 1996. Methodological and data problems mean that the results from the 2001 survey do not
give reliable estimates of these levels. However, using other available data sources, we make estimates by using the second method.
