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

71,725 people who were living in the National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA) in 2011 were born overseas, and 0% 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 National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA) 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.

The National Growth Areas Alliance (NGAA)'s Year of Arrival data, when used with Birthplace, Religion and Language Spoken at Home data, is a good indicator of the likely need for services in migrant communities.

Derived from the Census question:

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