Indians becomes second highest number of migrants in Australia

Around Australia, one and four or more bedroom homes have seen a rise at 5 per cent and 32.2 per cent respectively, up from 4.7 per cent and 30.3 per cent respectively in 2001.

Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's dream of a big Australia is slowly coming together, with our national population hitting 24.4 million in December past year.

More than 870,000 people - 3.7 per cent of all respondents listed their religious affiliation as Uniting Church.

The full version of the census results will be publicly released on Tuesday.

Social demographer Mark McCrindle said the boom in Chinese migration to NSW was a clear sign Australia's historic connections with Europe had been swapped for Asian ties.

There were 64,592 people living in the Hawkesbury who completed the Census.

"The migration numbers show that 86 per cent of all migrants born overseas end up in our capital cities", he said.

One of the more alarming figures to emerge is the rate at which rent is increasing... growing nearly 3 per cent faster than the national weekly income for the average Aussie.

About 95.1 per cent of the Australian population responded to the census, which is carried out every five years, Efe news quoted the Australian Bureau of Statistics census as saying.

The federal government is set to face pressure over whether the findings from last year's botched census can be trusted.

In a Facebook post, Maersk Line also confirmed that APM Terminals has been impacted at a number of ports. Its officials and customers say that it is working with manual methods to do business.

Shelton said the notion of a Muslim takeover in Australia was absurd.

'Malaysia now appears in the top 10 countries of birth - replacing Scotland - and represents 0.6 per cent of the Australian population'.

"I never got into the housing market and, these days with the way rents are, it's very hard if you're on a lower income or even a medium income, " said Mr O'Neill. According to the data Darwin was the most expensive city to buy in, whereas Hobart was the cheapest for home purchasers.

While the first census in 1911 found the average Australian was a 24-year-old man, last year the typical Aussie was a married 38-year-old woman, who lives in a three-bedroom house, with two kids and two cars.

Both Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory are expected to get another MP, while South Australia is slated to lose one MP.

She now works at the Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture at Western Sydney University and wasn't surprised Australia was increasingly popular.

The report of the independent assurance panel into census data quality commissioned in the wake of what became known as #CensusFail finds that Australians became far more circumspect about revealing their dates of birth (compliance fell from 90 per cent to 81 per cent) and less able to recall their names.

That's a 15 per cent jump from 23 per cent in 1991.

"Conversely, the proportion of migrants born in Asia has increased", it continued. Pictured are Naomi and Edward in China Town, Sydney. 25 years ago, 41.1 per cent owned homes outright, 27.5 per cent had a mortgage and 26.9 per cent rented.
