    Migration Numbers at Record High

    TIM COLEBATCH
    December 4, 2009

    THE number of permanent and long-term migrants arriving in Australia has soared to more than 500,000 a year.

    Record numbers of migrants, temporary workers and overseas students are piling into the lucky country.

    The Bureau of Statistics reports that Australia's population growth rose to another record level in the year to June, with preliminary figures showing the country grew by 443,139 or 2.07 per cent.

    Part of that came from a record crop of babies, as Australian women gave birth to more than 300,000 babies for the first time - lifting the country's fertility rate back to 1.98, almost enough to keep the population steady without any migration.

    But almost two-thirds of our population growth is now coming from net overseas migration, which has trebled in just five years to a record 285,347.
