Abstract: This chapter summarises broad historical characteristics and patterns of migrant population and settlement in Australia including some snapshots for States and Territories. Data from the 2001 (ABS 2002d) and, to a limited extent, the 1996 (ABS 1997) Census of Population and Housing were referenced, including Confidentialised Unit Record File (CURF) micro data samples (ABS 2002c). Where relevant census data were not available, Atlas of the Australian People (1999) provided reliable and comprehensive information, if somewhat dated. In addition, migrant settler arrival statistics produced by DIMA were sourced. Results from the Longitudinal Surveys of Immigrants to Australia (LSIAs) were used as the basis for providing further insights into recent settlement perceptions and experiences of immigrants and for reviewing migrant satisfaction with life in Australia. The chapter concludes with a synoptic view of recent settlement experiences.
