There are three birthplace variables for the 2011 Census: Birthplace of Female Parent (BPFP), Birthplace of Male Parent (BPMP) and Birthplace of Parents (BPPP), all of which indicate whether a person's parent/s were born in Australia or overseas. A fourth variable is Country of Birth of Person (BPLP) which records a person's country of birth. Prior to 2001, parental country of birth was coded to a country. In 2006 Birthplace of Female Parent (BPFP) and Birthplace of Male Parent (BPMP) were referred to as Country of Birth of Mother (BPFP) and Country of Birth of Father (BPMP) rather than 'Birthplace'.
