  • Each year Australia's population increases as a result of both natural increase (births minus deaths) and net overseas migration (NOM). In recent years NOM has accounted for over half of the population growth at the national level.
  • In 2009-10, the preliminary estimate of NOM was 215,600 persons, representing 57% of Australia's population growth for the year.
  • Net interstate migration in 2009-10, was a source of population loss for New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory, subtracting 10,500 persons, 3,000 persons and 800 persons respectively from their populations.
