The below should be very interesying reading to many of you, especially the old question of how many South Africans now call Australia home? So according to the very latest stats just released, the number ex South Africa is 140,000. The total Australian resident population is 21,507,719. The census shows that approx 1 out of three Australians come from somewhere else! The detailed data can be viewed on: http://www.abs.gov.au/census But below is some quick summary info:

Almost 6 million migrants, born in over 200 countries, live in Australia. According to figures released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), 27% of Australia's resident population were born overseas, as at June 2010.

People born in the United Kingdom continued to be the largest group of overseas-born residents, accounting for 1.2 million people. The next largest group was born in New Zealand with 544,000 people, followed by China (380,000 people), India (341,000) and Italy (216,000).

The majority (76%) of overseas-born residents were of working age, 15–64 years at June 2010. Migrants born in Asia, America and Africa had proportionally larger young (0–14 years) and working age (15–64 years) populations compared to those from Europe.

In 2009–10, net overseas migration contributed the greatest number of people to the most populous states: New South Wales with a net of 66,000 persons, followed by Victoria (60,400) and Queensland (39,700). The Northern Territory had the lowest contribution with a net of 1,300 persons.

Apologies but the simple stats tables did not come thru on my previous message, so below is the exact website if anyone wants to view these official Govt stats. You might have to copy and paste it into your browser and enter from there:

http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/Latestproducts/2071.0Main%20Features902012–2013?opendocument&tabname=Summary&prodno=2071.0&issue=2012–2013&num=&view=

In the below I will try one more time and see if it will copy and paste in correctly. But if you can't read this, then one will have to go onto the above stats site to view it:
