For the Census, people are classified as Overseas-born if:

    • they were born in a country other than Australia; or
    • they were born at sea; or
    • their response was classified 'Inadequately described'; or
    • their response was classified 'Not elsewhere classified'.

Australia is defined in the Standard Australian Classification of Countries (SACC). It includes the states and territories and the other territories of Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands and Jervis Bay Territory, but excludes Norfolk Island and the other Australian external territories (Australian Antarctic Territory, Heard and McDonald Islands, Ashmore and Cartier Islands and the Coral Sea Territory).
