City of Burnside

Overseas born - Introduction

In 2011, there were 11,488 overseas born people living in the City of Burnside.

This population includes anyone who stated a birthplace country other than Australia or its territories on their Census form.

The population born overseas is an extremely important one in Australia, as immigration is integral to our national identity, and has increased markedly since 2006. Information on migrant communities is vital for planning local government activities such as community services, library collections, translation services, as well as planning for types of dwellings and community infrastructure.

Derived from the Census question:

'In which country was the person born?'
