  3. Great article. This might be a dumb question but I thought census data on country of birth released so far only included the top 50 countries (as of the 2011 census) which didn’t include Syria. So where did you get the data on Syria?

      Thanks Alison. .id had a special order with the ABS to get access to the full list of birthplace countries, as part of our work to update our sites. Further data at an LGA level will be available on our sites over the coming weeks.

    This may not be the place to ask it, but how is Australia’s emigration measured? Do we know how many Australians and (former) residents have placed themselves elsewhere, and where they landed?

  5. Thanks Georgia! I want to update a report on CALD communities in WA and we have a gap for Kenya, Korea (South), Macedonia, Sudan, Vietnam and any significant recent influxes (which may include Syria for example). Frustrating to have to wait until October! But .id covers all but three of our top 18 LGAs in metropolitan Perth (as of 2011), so that will help in the meantime. Thanks again.
