The ABS is changing the way it will publish the content of the Migration Australia publication.
This is the final release in this compendium format. We are producing new publications that are more timely, accessible and reduce duplication where possible. There will be no loss of data through these changes.
In its place will be two new publications: Overseas Migration scheduled for release 17 December 2021, and Australia's Population by Country of Birth scheduled for release 26 April 2022.
This release covers data up to 30 June 2020 and as such, covers the start of the COVID-19 pandemic period.
Some of the changes recorded in this release are due to the impact of the pandemic.
