10.14. As there have been no significant debt forgiveness transactions involving Australia, no data are shown for this component. Other capital transfers, involving Australia’s official foreign aid program, are identified from the Ledgers. Data for other capital transfers associated with migrants’ transfers are obtained from the Migrants’ Transfers Model, which uses data from the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs under the Business Skills Category, data on numbers of migrants entering and leaving Australia and estimates of per capita (non-business) migrants’ transfers based on the SOFUT data. Data sources and methods are summarised in table 10.3.
