Hopefully you have had a chance to view this new product (released to the ABS Website on 28 February 2013). It is co-located with the Census data product suite and has the same look and feel as the Census QuickStats product except that it presents data for people in Australia on Census night 2011 by a selected country of birth and for a selected level of geography.

QuickStats Country of Birth is a fast, simple way for users to understand an area in terms of the country of birth of its residents. It presents summary tables of information about migrants from a particular country compared with all overseas born residents and the Australian born population in a particular area. This link contains the list of available countries and geographies.

QuickStats Country of Birth presents key themes from the 2011 Census relating to persons, families and dwellings for people born in a selected range of countries. Users can select from the top 53 countries of birth in the 2011 Census for geographic areas including Australia, States and Territories, Greater Capital City Statistical Areas (GCCSA) and Rest of State.

Tables, graphs and narratives present the information by country of birth for your chosen area in a way that is easily viewed and printed. It is an ideal product for students, small businesses, government and community groups needing general statistics on selected migrant groups for a particular geographic area.

Users have been keen for us to go a step further and release this type of information at even finer levels of geography. To this end, we have a new project underway to bring you information about the characteristics of overseas born residents for selected Local Government Areas (LGA) in capital cities and we hope to have this incorporated into the product suite in the near future.
