    Has anyone done a study of the effect of the Christchurch earthquake on the movements of that city’s population?

    How many have moved away temporarily and how many permanently? Have they started to move back ? In fact, is there any way to count them?

      Thanks for the comment Robin. Stats New Zealand provides an excellent resource at the following ‘earthquake protal’ link:
      http://www.stats.govt.nz/tools_and_services/services/earthquake-info-portal.aspx

      We used some of this work as input into our assumptions for the Wellington forecasts (in particular the reports on overseas experience and the school enrolments information). I am loath to stick my neck out and quote figures… there are quite a few different figures being bandied about, so I suggest you click on the link and have a look.
