A Multicultural Northern Territory – Statistics from the 2016 census

The Demography and Growth Planning team at the Northern Institute (CDU) have been working with the Northern Territory Office of Multicultural Affairs to provide a compendium of information based on the 2016 census about the multicultural profile of the people of the Northern Territory. The work identifies the growing demographic, economic and social importance of our diverse cultural background. In this seminar we provide a research-based overview of key developments and trends in our multicultural and overall population make-up, as well as examining some detailed data to provide further insights on Alice Springs.
