I removed from the article because it doesn't look right. The growth rates look excessively high (~4%/year for the last couple of decades, which is much higher than the true rates, and over 40%/year for large chunks of the 1800s - at this rate the population would've been doubling every three years!)
The file for the graph includes source data; the percentages in that data look much more credible but they do not match the numbers on the graph. --GenericBob (talk) 08:41, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
"More than 92 percent of all Australians descend from Europeans. Anglo-Celtic Australians (English, Scottish, Welsh, Cornish or Irish ancestral origin) make up 74 percent of the Australian population. 12 percent of the Australian population have an Asian ancestral origin."
100 - 12 definitely is definitely less than 92. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:58, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
The maths might seem confusing if you forget that a person doesn't have to have two parents with the same ancestry. It's entirely possible for somebody with one Asian parent to also have a parent with European ancestry. --AussieLegend (✉) 16:58, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
