Australian Immigration slows down except for NSW

Immigration in half of the states in Australia have slowed down however, there are still a few states that have increased in migration, leading the way is New South Wales.

The immigration rate of New South Wales rose by 9.4 per cent if you compare it to last year's rate, with an increase of six thousand three hundred people. Meanwhile, Queensland's rate fell twenty four per cent with almost ten thousand migrants arriving in the year to June.

In Western Australia, the migrant intake dropped by forty per cent, which is almost twenty thousand individuals over the same period. The same goes with the Northern Territory which also went down by forty per cent of two thousand people. It actually went down further compared to the Australian Capital Territory, which was down by twenty five per cent or seven hundred people.

The Australian Demographics report released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics this month found that all states had increased in their population from migration over the past twelve months.

According to Ms. Denise Carlton, the spokeswoman for the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the natural population growth which is births versus deaths, also showed a decrease, with three hundred thousand nine hundred babies born last year (going down 3.3 per cent), and one hundred forty eight thousand seven hundred deaths (also down by 0.3 per cent).

"Today's release also reveals how fast the number of people aged sixty five years and over are growing," stated Ms. Carlton. "Over the past twenty years, this group has grown by sixty five per cent, more than double the rate of increase for the working age population and 4 times faster than children.''

Ms. Carlton also said that because of this, the median age of the country has grown by 4 years over the past twenty years, from 33.4 years in 1994, to 37.3 years in the year 2014.

"Tasmania remained our oldest state with a median age of 41.6 years, while the Northern Territory is the youngest with a median age of 31.8," she finished by saying.
