The Settlement Reporting Facility uses the Settlement Database to provide statistical data on permanent settlers to Australia who have arrived since January 1991.

It brings together data from various sources to assist government and community agencies involved in the planning and provision of services to migrants. It may also be of use to researchers or members of the general public.

Some information included in this database is provided on a voluntary basis (such as religion and language proficiency). If the information requested is not provided, reports may list items as ‘Unknown’ or ‘Not Stated’.
