A New report on Sri Lankan community in Australia

The largest group of overseas-born Australian residents in 2021 were born in England (967,000 people), followed by India (710,000 people), China (595,000), New Zealand (559,000), Philippines (310,000), Vietnam (268,000), South Africa (201,000), Malaysia (172,000), Italy (171,000) and Sri Lanka (146,000).

Simon Kuestenmacher — co-founder of Melbourne-based Demographics Group said these statistics — in terms of diversity — are a world apart from what they were a quarter of a century ago.

“You have two European countries in the top 10 and six Asian nations. And 25 years ago, this was exactly opposite,” he said.

While India was the second-largest group of migrants in Australia, this has decreased in size by 13,000 people in one year.

“People born in India are the second-largest migrant group in Australia. The reason for that is that China essentially [puts] a brake on the amount of people that it let’s go to Australia, otherwise those born in China would have been bigger,” Mr Kuestenmacher said.
