This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?
6,452 people who were living in Sunshine North in 2016 were born overseas, and 21% arrived in Australia within 5 years prior to 2016.
The Year of Arrival data records when the overseas born population arrived in Australia. The data shows the degree to which areas are 'ports' for new overseas arrivals and reveals the role of Sunshine North in housing the overseas-born. The number of recent overseas arrivals in an area is often determined by housing affordability, employment opportunities and pre-existing communities located in the area.
Derived from the Census question:
'In what year did the person first arrive in Australia to live here for one year or more?'
