Dataset: Permanent additions to Australia’s resident population


Permanent additions consists of two components:

  1. Those persons who were in Australia on a temporary basis and were granted a permanent visa while in Australia.

  2. Those persons who made an initial arrival from overseas on a permanent visa granted while they were outside Australia. These are termed settler arrivals.

Note: The ABS revised figures for Settler Arrivals in September 2017, which are not included in years prior to 2016-17.
