Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. The Department 2009Description: 88 p.: ill., photos.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Australian Journey : Muslim communities is characterised by contributions of people from all over the world who have made Australia home. Today there are more than 22 million Australians. We speak over 300 languages, including Indigenous languages, identify with more than 200 ancestries and observe a wide variety of cultural and religious traditions. In Australia people of all cultures and religions are able to express their beliefs and practise their religion without intimidation and without interference. Muslims were some of the very first visitors to our shores and have helped to build our country into the prosperous and successful nation it is today. Many have chosen to live in Australia for the sake of their children, for education opportunities and for a better life. They bring with them a wealth of different ideas, skills and talents. This publication recognises the diversity of Australia's Muslim communities and celebrates the important role many have played in Australia's past and present and will continue to play in the future. The photographs feature some successful Muslims in Australia and their thoughts about what it means to be both a Muslim and an Australian. As we journey further into the 21st century, Australia continues to prosper thanks to its vibrant mix of people committed to their country and culture.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)
