I agree ... if you look at the global world, rather than people choosing to move to sparsely populated or rural areas it is quite the reverse, with massive primate cities and capitals being highly densley populated.
Europe is highly densly population and the level of immigration is extremely high. In SE Asia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and Taiwan act as magnets for people.
If anything it is the disparetly populated places that lose population and the cities and megalopolis' that gain. In the states the Eastern and Western Seaboards have massive inward population movements.
The fact is where there is a perception of wealth or advantage then there will be immigration, 'the bright lights effect'. This is happening everywhere and is the reason why cities like Lagos or Delhi or Beijing continue to grow and grow and grow.
With increased immigration it means that the player has to continue to develop all the hosp/Uni/welfare state which makes it more of a challenge ... so therefore high immigration would cause the developed countries to suffer more unless they are properly monitored by their owner on SC.
Just my opinion ... oh and all the academic world !

I think this index has been altered from the posted, or I'm just reading it wrong (which is distinctly possible).
Currently my migration index is listed as 47.6. Going by what's been stated, I should be theoretically stable in population with no visible change due to immigration. Only birth and death.
However in 1 month, there's been a drop of 15000 (0.0008%).
Meanwhile, a slave country with an index of 46.2 continues to grow steadily in population.
Am I missing something?

What is your population in said country?
High-population (over 30-35M) coutnries tend to lose people.

My 36M pop main is steadily gaining people with a welfare index of 113.
My 19M pop keeper slaves (of which there are 9) have been posting steady losses while having welfare indices of 90-100
And my 16M pop crap slave with a welfare index of 60 has been steadily gaining people.
Yet more proof of Camus' assertion of the absurd universe.

Are you moving people around at all?

Not that I am aware of.
Maybe Jozi has adopted a Karmatic approach to the whole thing... the current population losses are due to the nations' sins during their time as C3s.

"Migration Index"? Where is it listed, or how do you calculate it?
