SOCIAL CONNECTEDNESS OF MIGRANTS

This article uses the ABS 2010 General Social Survey (GSS) to analyse several characteristics of social and community connectedness of two migrant arrival groups - those arriving before 2006 and those arriving between 2006 and 2010. It explores the types of social activities migrants engaged in and with whom, frequency of engagements, types of social organisations participated in, as well as their general levels of life satisfaction and trust. The article aims to analyse ‘life outcomes‘ variables collected in the 2010 GSS to similar variables that formed part of the Settlement Outcomes of Newly Arrived migrants survey (SoNA) that was independently commissioned by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.
