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)
