City of Burnside

Non-English speakers - Year of arrivals

In 2011, 5,942 non-English speakers living in the City of Burnside were born overseas, and 35.8% arrived in Australia within 5 years prior to 2011.

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 the City of Burnside in housing newer or older migrant groups. When looking at those speaking a language other than English this will tend to exclude those from English speaking countries, and may indicate whether the languages are used by recent migrants, older migrants, or 2nd or 3rd generation Australians.

Derived from the Census question:

'In what year did the person first arrive in Australia to live here for one year or more?'
