Given that immigrants make up a significant proportion of the Australian population, it is a bit odd that this article does not include a year by year breakdown of immigration numbers.
If you are going to include a detailed chart on the total number of births/deaths since 1900, wouldn't it make sense to also include a chart on the annual immigration figures?. The birth and death figures present a misleading picture without taking into account immigration numbers...for example, the record high birthrate in Australia since 2008 is largely down to a substantial rise in the number of immigrant arrivals over the past ten years.
Why aren't there any statistics on the percentage of black people (i.e. non-white people of African ancestry) living in Australia? Surely there most be some info on it. 2604:2000:7FC0:1:994C:E811:2B3A:3A95 (talk) 09:26, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
