Year of arrival in Australia
5,242 people living in Guildford were born overseas and 15% arrived in Australia within the last 5 years.
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 migrants and reveals the role of Guildford in housing the overseas-born. The number of recent 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?'
