Australia's Diverse Population

A new report shows that, in 2004-5, the Australian population increased by 110,000 persons due to net overseas migration.

At 30 June 2005, almost one quarter of the Australian population was born overseas, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Persons born in Sub-Saharan Africa recorded an average increase of 6% per year, the largest growth of all major regions between 1996 and 2005
