Australia PR Immigrant Population Boasts 56% Asians: DHA

Asia is the largest source of Australia PR immigrants as per the latest statistics released by the Department of Home Affairs. In the fiscal year 2016-17, 56% of the PR immigrants in Australia are from Asia. Liz Allen, demographer at Australian National University said that global population in Australia is structurally aging.

The country is also competing for immigrants with other nations like US, the UK, and Canada, he added.

The below table consists of top PR immigrants in Australia:

Rank Continental Regions Number of Australia PR Immigrants

2 North-East Asia 37,235
3 South-East Asia 31,488

Australia is now vouching for skilled workers from the global regions to fill the labour shortage gap in the country said the demographer. India and China are the key contributors of Australian immigration population, he said as quoted by the ABC Net Au.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed that Australian population has reached 25 million marks. The population of Australia is increasing by 1 person every 83 seconds estimates the ABS population clock.
