In Australia, over one-in-four of the total population are born overseas, placing it amongst the top countries in the developed world with high proportions of migrants. Migrant populations within Australia have varied greatly over time, and this has also depended on where they came from, as well as where they settled in Australia. Australian policy has also had an influence on settlement patterns. Since Australia is highly urbanised with over 80% of the population living in the mainlandital cities, there has been a strong push to regional and rural areas. This poster shows the evolution of migration over time, and provides some evidence of 'regional attractiveness' using innovative demographic techniques.
