Updates, corrections and superseded versions
27 Sept 2018 - Change to the wording of the 'People at risk of homelessness' chapter and references.
26 Jul 2019 - The edition of this report released on 10 September 2018, stated on the Culturally and linguistically diverse people page under Demographics of older Australians ‘Older Australia is made up of people from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. In 2016, just over 3 in 10 (33%) people aged 65 and over were born overseas, up from 25% in 1981’.
The method of producing the proportion ‘33% of people aged 65 and over were born overseas’ was inconsistent with the method used for producing this statistic on the Culturally and linguistically diverse people page under the Diverse groups of older Australians, which states ‘In 2016, 37% of people aged 65 and over were born overseas’. This is due to the inclusion of the not stated population in the denominator for the first statistic. Excluding the not stated population aligns the first statistic with the method used throughout the report and what is reported by the ABS.
