Is there a direct link to the spreadsheet? I can't scroll through it on my iPad in that format
Simon, you have South America since 2006. There have since 1995. http://www.edvnepal.com/archived-visa-bulletin/page-11.html
I hope you will make this data for a complete picture.
Data shows that January 2015 is the 4th best of this month in 20 years for EU region. If things keep going at this pace it will be a great year.
Hey Simon, so how big was Bangladesh's effect on the following year's CNs? I have a very high AF CN (78xxx), just trying to factor in Nigeria's exclusion...Yes, DV2014 was a good year for EU, and I expect that to happen again. Just remember, years in a sense only compare to similar years. Exclusions of countries will change the numbers as we saw before with Bangladesh, and as Nigeria will change this year...

That is a sensible question - Bangladesh had many entrants and when it was excluded the CN ranges dropped significantly. That is evidence for why I think Nigeria is going to have a similar impact - and I have been saying that numbers are not comparable for AF region (high numbers). So - 2015AF78XXX is probably significantly higher than 2014AF78XXX.
You can see that AS region had a highest cutoff in the 40 - 50k range up to 2012 and then dropped dramatically in 2013. However, Bangladesh had CRAZY entry numbers (7.6M in 2012) which led to huge number of holes....
All explained here...so does it mean that CNs are being created when the entry happens ? or after the selection ? and why some countries have lower CNs than the others ?
I still do not understand the sequence of the CNs !!!
