Goals[edit]

Scope[edit]

Open tasks[edit]

This is a new project, and several things need to be done. Many of these things will remain important as the project develops. Among them are:

  • Recruiting members and keeping them active and interested
  • Improving any articles falling within the scope of this project
  • Creating any articles which are important, but have not currently been created
  • Actively watching, monitoring and exercising some care, caution, and standards in the way ethnic and/or descent based labels are assigned and attributed to individuals, and segments of Australia's populations
  • Actively watching, monitoring, and maintaining the demographic integrity of articles about indigenous Australians, including making any changes as necessary
  • Tagging articles and understand the scope of present coverage of the topic and identify gaps in coverage

Specific activities[edit]

  • Merge Migratory history of Australia Immigration history of Australia to Immigration to Australia as per talk page discussions of a year ago
  • Rename relevant articles in format Booian Australian no hyphen, no plural
  • For Booian Australian articles we should continue to use Country of Birth and ancestry data, but have caveats (including in the info-box); promote most ACCURATE and PRECISE descriptions of population characteristics as is possible; use citizenship statistics where possible
