CHANGES TO THE MIGRATION PUBLICATION
- Annual release schedule has changed - The release date of Migration, Australia 2007-08 (cat. no. 3412.0) is scheduled for 28 July 2009. This annual release has changed from the usual month of March due to the introduction of the improved methods of calculating net overseas migration. Final net overseas migration data is now available 18 months after the end of the financial year due to this improved methodology. The release of 2007-08 net overseas migration and net interstate migration data will be available first in the September quarter 2008 issue of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0) scheduled for release on 18 March 2009.
- Review of content - The content of this publication has been reviewed, with the aim of reducing duplication of data. The majority of tables presented in the printed publication (in Adobe PDF format) are proposed to be preserved in electronic format (Microsoft Excel and SuperCross). Additional electronic tables are also proposed to ensure a more consistent range of migration data, covering interstate migration, overseas migration and the estimated resident population by country of birth.
