Australia Facts and Figures
Migration to Australia
The table to the right shows these migrants by their state of intended residence. As well as the actual headcount, we see the percentage of the Australian total. The three states at the top (NSW, Vic, Qld) are also the most populated states, and have received the most new migrants for many years.
We also see the numbers as a percentage of each state's population (ie, the state's growth rate due to overseas migration) and this shows that the "resource boom" states of WA and NT are currently growing at the fastest rates.
The same numbers are also represented in the illustration below.
