This study analysed a wide range of local and international data sources to conduct a comprehensive investigation on the demographic, education and labour market characteristics of three groups of people: 1) immigrants into South Africa; 2) natives who remained in the country; and 3) emigrants out of South Africa into the top five destination countries (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom [UK] and the United States of America [USA]). The empirical findings were used to investigate the extent of migration to and from the country, from the perspectives of skills supply and demand.
