Indian population in Australia increases 30 per cent in less than two years


The Indian population in Australia has exponentially grown in the last two years according to the latest figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The ABS’s preliminary estimates suggest there are 592,000 Indians living in Australia as of June 2018. This is a 30 per cent jump compared to Census 2016 figures which recorded 455,389 Indians living in Australia. India with 592,000 people moved into third place dropping the New Zealand born (568,000) down to the fourth place. India now accounts for 2.4% of the Australian population and the median age of an Indian migrant is revealed to be 34 years, same as those born in Australia. After England and China, India ranks third on the list of residents born overseas according to the latest figures by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Source: Sbs.com.au
