This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?

In 2016, 42% of people in Doncaster East, came from countries where English was not their first language.

Country of Birth data identifies where people were born and is indicative of the level of cultural diversity in Doncaster East. The mix of Country of Birth groups is also indicative of historical settlement patterns, as source countries for Australia's immigration program have varied significantly over time.

To get a more complete picture of cultural and ethnic characteristics, Doncaster East's Country of Birth data should be viewed together with Ancestry, Language Spoken at Home and Religion.

Please note: Due to changes in ABS rules around perturbation and additivity of data to protect the confidentiality of individuals in 2016, counts of individual birthplace groups and totals derived from them may differ slightly from those published by the ABS. For more information see notes on data confidentiality.

Derived from the Census question:

'In which country was the person born?'
