This article examines the family characteristics of migrant families using data from the Family Characteristics Survey 2009-10. Of particular interest is how migrant families compare with non-migrant families. In addition, the discussion compares migrant family types, broadly defined in terms of country of birth and the year of arrival into Australia of the most recently arrived 'key member' of the family. This article looks at migrants families in terms of their composition, year of arrival, geographic distribution and country of origin. Some person level data on migrant children aged 0 to 17 years and migrant households is also included.
