Latvians in Ireland and UK: the numbers, part 2

One week ago, I wrote about the statistics how many Latvians have left for Ireland and UK. This is the continuation, on how these numbers have changed between 2004 and now. The first graph shows the number of Latvians who have moved Ireland for first time, according to Irish authorities:
To make the comparison between the years fair, I have divided the number of people who arrived in each year by the number of months for which we have data. (For 2004, that would be 8 months after Latvia joined EU in May 2004. For 2005 and 2006, 12 months. For 2007, 6 months because we don't have data for the rest of the year yet.)

The immigration from Latvia to Ireland is clearly decreasing. Slowly in 2006 and then more quickly in 2007. The numbers from UK show a similar trend.

The second graph compares the trends in various countries. To keep it simple, I compared two years, 2005 and 2007. Here are the immigration rates (the number of people arriving in Ireland, divided by the population):
The red lines show the rates for 2005, the blue for 2007. For all three Baltic states, the numbers have significantly decreased. It appears that the present economic boom is making people substantially less interested in leaving their country.

Accidentially, the Latvian business magazine LD had the cover story "Latvians start returning from Ireland" last week. (The link is to the picture of the magazine, the story itself is only in the print edition.)

why Latvians stop their migration to Ireland, it's so suspicious don't you think?

It is interesting to read the different reasons why people left their countries, some are sad and others are just feelings of hope.
