QUICKSTATS COUNTRY OF BIRTH
An exciting new product was released onto the ABS Website on 28 February 2013 for those with an interest in data relating to migrants. It is co-located with the Census data product suite and has the same look and feel as the Census QuickStats product except that it presents data for people in Australia on Census night 2011 by a selected country of birth and for a selected level of geography.
QuickStats Country of Birth is a fast, simple way for users to understand an area in terms of the country of birth of its residents. It presents summary tables of information about migrants from a particular country compared with all overseas born residents and the Australian born population in a particular area.
QuickStats Country of Birth presents key themes from the 2011 Census relating to persons, families and dwellings for people born in a selected range of countries. Users can select from the top 53 countries of birth in the 2011 Census for geographic areas ranging from Australia, States and Territories to Greater Capital City Statistical Areas (GCCSA) and Rest of State. Tables, graphs and narratives present the information by country of birth for your chosen area of interest in a way that is easily viewed and printed. It is an ideal product for students, small businesses, government and community groups needing general statistics on selected migrant groups for a particular geographic area.
This link contains the list of available countries and geographies. It is hoped that an even finer level of geography (e.g. Local Government Area (LGA) in capital cities) may be able to be incorporated into the product at a later stage if this product proves popular.
