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e) There are slight differences between the immigration figures produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (unpublished statistics used in this document) and the Department of Immigration (the Bureau of Immigration, Multicultural and Population Research's Australian Immigration: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 (83). 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.
