The Asianisation of Australia: volume 2, part 2



Part Two


Australia: Migration Statistics




These statistics show the decline in the rate of European immigration over the years. For example, the 1959/60 Settler Arrivals from Europe were 92.1% of the total intake, whereas this had dropped to 25.8% in 1996/97. The Asianisation of Australia: An Exposé of the Asian Future Being Forced Upon Australia and The Demise of the White Australia Policy show how such a decline has been brought about, and that it was deliberately contrived.



EXPLANATION OF TERMS:


Permanent Arrivals (Settlers):
"Settlers comprise persons arriving in Australia who hold permanent visas, regardless of stated intended period of stay, New Zealand citizens who indicate an intention to settle, and those who are otherwise eligible to settle (eg. overseas- born children of Australian citizens)."(35)

The Department of Immigration notes that "This definition of settlers was adopted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in January 1985 to equate that used by this Department. Prior to that date the definition used by the ABS was based on the traveller's stated intention only." (Note: In compiling the statistics in this document, from the ABS' microfiche statistics and the Department of Immigration's published Consolidated Statistics series, discrepancies only appeared in the statistics for the period 1982/83 to 1987/88; therefore, supplementary tables have been produced in this document, listing the Department of Immigration's statistics for that period, although these differ only minutely from those produced by the ABS).(36)

Net Settler Gain:
Comprises Permanent Arrivals (Settlers), minus any Former Settlers departing permanently.

Net Permanent Gain:
Comprises Permanent Arrivals (Settlers), minus any Former Settlers departing permanently, and minus the permanent departure of any other Australian residents.

Long-Term Movement:
"Temporary visa holders arriving and residents departing temporarily with the intention to stay in Australia or abroad for twelve months or more, and the departure of temporary visa holders and the return of residents who had stayed abroad for twelve months or more."(37)

Short-Term Movement:
"Travellers whose intended or actual stay in Australia or abroad is less than twelve months."(38)

Permanent and Long-Term Arrivals:
Comprises Permanent Arrivals (Settlers) plus Long-Term Arrivals.

Net Permanent and Long-Term Gain:
Comprises Permanent Arrivals (Settlers) plus Long-Term Arrivals; minus 1) the departure of Former Settlers, 2) the departure of other Australian residents, and 3) the departure of Long-Term Arrivals.

Net Total Immigration:
Comprises Permanent Arrivals (Settlers), plus Long-Term Arrivals, plus Short-Term Arrivals; minus 1) the departure of Former Settlers, 2) the departure of other Australian residents, 3) the departure of Long-Term Arrivals, and 4) the departure of Short-Term Arrivals. However, as has been discussed elsewhere in this document, this category is to a great extent based upon Short-Term Movement, for which category the Australian Bureau of Statistics uses a system of "sampling", rather than full calculation of the numbers involved.

Notes:
a) All years listed are financial years: July 1st to June 30th.
b) "Settler" statistics were kept only from January 1959.
c) "Asia" includes "West Asia", except that Cyprus has been included in "Europe".
d) Immigration statistics for 1983/84 have been rounded off.
e) There are slight differences between the immigration figures produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (unpublished statistics used in this document) and the Department of Immigration (the Bureau of Immigration, Multicultural and Population Research's Australian Immigration: Consolidated Statistics issues numbered 17 and 18) for the years 1982/83 - 1987/88 (40*). The Department of Immigration's figures for those years are produced below, while the Australian Bureau of Statistics' figures are incorporated in the table above, so that direct comparisons can be made with the other immigration tables in this document.

Notes:
a) All years listed are financial years: July 1st to June 30th.
b) "Settler" statistics were kept only from January 1959.
c) "Asia" includes "West Asia", except that Cyprus has been included in "Europe".
d) Immigration and emigration statistics for 1983/84 have been rounded off.
e) "Net Settler Gain" is "Settler Arrivals" minus "Former Settler Departures".
f) There are slight differences between the immigration figures produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (unpublished statistics used in this document) and the Department of Immigration (the Bureau of Immigration, Multicultural and Population Research's Australian Immigration: Consolidated Statistics issues numbered 17 and 18) for the years 1982/83 - 1987/88. The Department of Immigration's figures for those years are produced below, while the Australian Bureau of Statistics' figures are incorporated in the table above, so that direct comparisons can be made with the other immigration tables in this document.

Notwithstanding this, the "Permanent Departure" figures from the ABS and the BIMPR are exactly the same; however, as the Department of Immigration's immigration figures for those years are different, this means that the net immigration figures will also differ.
