Perspectives on Migrants


The National Migrant Statistics Unit recently released the first issue of the Perspectives on Migrants (cat. no. 3416.0), providing informed articles on migrant and ethnic population groups within Australia, including:
  • the relationship between birthplace and religion
  • migrant peoples experiences of crime victimisation
  • an overview of data relating to overseas students
  • the English proficiency of migrants in Australia.

In addition, some articles illustrate how the new Migrant Data Matrices (ABS cat. no. 3415.0) and the Guide to Migrant Statistical Sources (cat. no. 3414.0) can be used as research tools.

Articles will be released biannually on the ABS website. For other new products from the National Migrant Statistics Unit please see the ABS Migrant and Ethnicity theme page or the half yearly electronic newsletter Migrant Statistics News.
