Michael Jeremy pointed me to some new material being released by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship providing country profiles on Australia's migrant groups. So far, ten countries are covered.
I mention this because the profiles provide interesting comparative insights into the varying patterns of migration that are steadily changing this country.
As an example, at the end of June 2009 the Australian Chinese born population totaled 350,960 or 1.6 per cent of the total population. Over half this group lived in NSW. By contrast, the Indian born population totaled 305,840 of which the NSW share was around 40 per cent, with Victorian increasing in popularity.
I won't comment further at this point. I just thought that you might find the profiles interesting.
