The following table was produced using STEUCP and STEU5P data from the 1996 Census for people whose State/Territory of usual residence in 1996 was different to their State/Territory of usual residence in 1991. It shows the number of people who left each State/Territory and the number of people who arrived in each State/Territory. For example, the table shows Queensland had 267,987 arrivals from interstate with the majority of people coming from New South Wales (127,704 persons) and Victoria (74,514 persons). It also shows 122,528 people left Queensland for other States and Territories with the majority of people going to New South Wales (59,941 persons) and Victoria (24,455 persons).
By using the variables STEUCP and STEU1P a similar table showing interstate movers 1995 to 1996 could be derived.

These variables can be used in a similar way to the State of Usual Residence variables. They can be used to create other geography that is based on SLAs including Local Government Areas, Statistical Divisions and Statistical Regions etc.
Other data on interstate migration
The ABS produces quarterly information on interstate migration in the publication Australian Demographic Statistics (Cat. no. 3101.0). The data are derived from a combination of information that is acquired from the census, and from unidentified information on interstate changes of address advised by the Health Insurance Commission.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
