Migration Statistics into Australia

The numbers of people from the United Kingdom that are migrating to Australia has recently been reducing, although it may be beginning to pick up again, after a winter (Australian Winter) slump.

This chart shows the 12 months prior to this post, with the comparison of the UK numbers against the total worldwide migrants to Australia.

2008 22,680 14.0% 161,520
2009 17,950 12.1% 148,410

This does show that the recent prime period of the British migration to Australia really got going in 2003, peaking in 2006-07, but dropping down a bit in 2009.

The first 8 months of 2010 totalled 9,010, which would be 13,515 if annualised.  This would be a drop back down to normal for the last 20 years.

Edit: 2010 figures now added:

Year From UK UK % of all All Settlers
2009 17,950 12.09% 148,410
2010 12,860 9.94% 129,410

From 1991 to 2009, the average annual intake of Migrants from the UK has been 14,120, according to the above figures.

This chart compares ALL migration numbers with just those from the UK between 1991 and 2010.
