OVERSEAS MIGRATION ASSUMPTION

One assumption has been made for future net overseas migration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people:

  • zero overseas migration, with zero arrivals and zero departures.


Trends in overseas migration

According to the 2011 Census of Population and Housing, there were 1,375 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people resident in Australia in 2011 who lived overseas in 2006, equivalent to an in-migration rate of 2.1 persons per 1,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons for the period 2006-2011. This level of in-migration has a negligible effect on the size of the future Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population of Australia. In addition, there will also be some level of out-migration of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population leading to an even smaller net migration rate.


Assumed future overseas migration

Net overseas migration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is assumed to be zero (with zero arrivals and departures) for the duration of the projection period.
