453 people who were living in Black Forest in 2011 were born overseas, and 35% 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 Black Forest 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.

Black Forest'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?'
