The PMD date of arrival on which the scope is based reflects an individual's latest arrival pertaining to their latest permanent visa. For an offshore applicant, the PMD arrival date is when the applicant arrives in Australia on that permanent visa. However, for a person who applies onshore for a permanent visa, the date of arrival listed on the PMD is the date of their last entry into Australia.
The Census of Population and Housing is conducted every five years. For further information see 2016 Census Overview and Understanding the Census and Census Data.
