This paper provides some background to the Migrants Quality Study, a brief description of the linking process, a thorough evaluation of the quality of the linked data, and then associated discussion about the usefulness of the linked data. ; The results from this quality study indicate that linking the SDB to the SLCD is feasible and can produce useful information that no other data source currently provides. However, some quality issues have been identified and need to be thoroughly understood to ensure that the linked data is correctly interpreted and appropriately used.Availability: (1)

Population and migration : understanding the numbers /

by Australia. Productivity Commission.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australia. Productivity Commission 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010 Bibliography : p. 83-92Summary: Some useful attempts have been made to make population-related statistics more accessible to the general public. The ABS and the Department of Immigration and Citizenship ? the organisations responsible for collecting the data ? produce detailed supporting publications explaining how the data are collected and what the statistics mean. Prominent demographic researchers, such as Peter McDonald, Graeme Hugo, Bob Birrell and others, have written papers examining particular aspects of population and migration statistics. The aim of this paper is to ?demystify? population-related statistics further and to promote a clearer understanding of what has been happening. The paper consolidates and interprets statistical evidence from various sources, and seeks to shed light on issues that appear to have been overlooked. It provides a basic context for, and general explanations of, the key population-related issues of fertility and mortality, overseas migration, geographical distribution and population projections.Availability: (1)

The outlook for net overseas migration /

by Australia. Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. The Department 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2011 appendices : pp. 15-17Summary: The Department of Immigration and Citizenship (The Department) is working to implement a Long-Term Migration Planning Framework which looks at both temporary and permanent migration flows over a multi-year period. As part of this, the department is forecasting net overseas migration (NOM) by flows and visa components and updating these forecasts on a quarterly basis. The NOM forecasting framework combines the latest data on visa grants with past behaviour of migrants across different visa groups to enter the population. It takes into account the impact of existing policy decisions as well as the official economic outlook, including changes announced in the 2011-12 Budget. ; There is a good reason for doing NOM forecasts based on the detailed and current departments internal data. Official NOM figures are released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) with a lag of more than six months. The most recent (preliminary) figures released by the ABS are for the year-ending September 2010. On the other hand, the departments quarterly report provides estimates for the most recent quarter and the outlook over five years. In future, the department will look to expand its forecasting capacity to analyse NOM flows at the state, territory and regional levels.Availability: (1)
