Relocation in Australia

RelocationGoing back two centuries or so, Australia is a nation almost entirely composed of immigrants, and many people still choose to relocate there. After deducting the number of emigrants, the number of people moving into Australia (net migration) is currently at 150,000 per year. To compare this with other countries, the net migration rate is used. Australia has a net migration rate of +5.74 migrants per 1,000 population, putting the country in 23rd place in the world.

Internal migration in Australia is also at a high rate. An average of 1.5% of the population relocate every year towards urban centres, adding to the 89% of the population who currently live in a city or town. These statistics also include suburban areas and places outside of, but adjacent to, the boundaries of cities (source: CIA World Factbook).
