NATSEM - Social and Economic Indicators - Migration Rate SA2 2016

This dataset presents the migration rate in small regions of Australia based on the 2016 Census and aggregated following the 2016 edition of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). The data has been provided by The National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM).

The migration rate is the proportion of people in the area who were not born in Australia, that is, who have migrated to Australia in the past.

All indicators were extracted from the ABS Tablebuilder system using the usual residence profile. For usual residence data, the ABS moves people back to where they live, rather than using the location the data were collected (place of enumeration). Usual residence data is preferred for individual level data because it removes the effect of respondents travelling or holidaying.

For more information please view the NATSEM Technical Report: https://apps.aurin.org.au/gate/technicalreports/NATSEM/AURIN%20Social%20Data%20Technical%20Report%20Nov%202018.pdf.

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data provided directly from NATSEM.
  • Where data values are NULL, the data is either unpublished or not applicable mathematically.
  • In the calculation, Inadequately Described, At sea, Not Stated and Overseas Visitor were excluded from both the numerator and denominator as there is no information on these respondents.
  • Methodology between the 2016 NATSEM and 2011 OECD data release may have changed, please refer to the technical report for parity status and specific changes.
