Statistics showing monthly totals of immigrants into Rhodesia during 1965 are not available. Total figures for the first nine months of 1965 supplied by the Rhodesian Central Statistical Office prior to the illegal declaration of independence show that Rhodesia gained 8,137 European immigrants and lost 5,212 European emigrants; a net gain of 2,925.
