A Negative Palestinian Migration Rate

Thirty thousand more Arabs left Judea and Samaria for Jordan than came into Israel.

Allenby Bridge

This piece of news was brought to light thanks to IMRA:

JERICHO, January 1, 2013 (WAFA) – An estimated 1.3 million people crossed Allenby bridge with Jordan in both directions during 2012, a police report said Tuesday.

It said the number of people leaving the West Bank was 30,000 more than those entering it from the Jordanian side.

Well, as for net emigration rate (“Net migration rate is the difference of immigrants and emigrants of an area in a period of time, divided (usually) per 1,000 inhabitants (considered on midterm population). A positive value represents more people entering the country than leaving it, while a negative value mean more people leaving than entering it), I really am not qualified to make a judgment.

The number 30,000, I think, is too small to reflect on for this year.  Or is it?

After all, people who overstayed tourist visa/family visit permission could have been a factor.

Most importantly, it is negative.

Demographic threat do I hear?
