    Million Whites Leave South Africa - Study

    Out of control Black crime and affirmative action are main causes for White exodus

    By: Peet van Aardt

    Johannesburg - One million white South Africans - almost a fifth - have left the country in the past ten years.

    This figure was released last week in a report from the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR).

    Frans Cronjé, who compiled the report, said it was especially crime and affirmative action which had driven a fifth of South Africa's white population out of the country.

    He did an analysis of Statistics South Africa's Household Surveys between 1995 and 2005, emigration figures and other reliable estimates on population numbers.

    Cronjé said the results left himself and his colleagues dumbfounded.

    "When we drew the graphs we saw that almost a whole generation of white South Africans are not here anymore."

    Young people, children leaving

    The SAIRR's population pyramid of white South Africans show a definite loss of young people and children under the age of ten.

    The figures for 2005 put the number of white South Africans in the country at 4.3 million, 841 000 fewer than the 5.2 million of 1995.

    Cronjé predicts that the white population would continue to shrink, and, he said, the situation would have a far-reaching impact on the economy.

    "The white population is getting older, which means the white taxpayers are only going to contribute to the economy for the next twenty years. There would have to be a huge influx of skilled workers to fill this gap. This, unfortunately, is not the case."
