In 2006, the number of immigrants to the Netherlands increased for the f irst time since 2001, reflecting growing labour migration in the context of a tightening labour market. More than 101 000 immigrants came to the Netherlands in 2006, compared to about 92 000 in 2005. At the same time, however, emigration from the Netherlands (including both Dutch and foreign nationals) rose for the seventh year in a row, from 83 400 in 2005 to just over 91 000 in 2006. When correcting for unreported emigration, total emigration even exceeded total immigration by more than 31 000 ‐ the largest figure for several decades.
