Migration Program Statistics
The following table contains Migration Program outcomes for 2008–09 to 2011–12 and planning levels for 2012–13 and 2013–14.
We can see that the focus is on bringing Skilled migrants in, with 67% of the allocation given to the skills stream vs family stream. However looking at the individual categories, we see that the partner, employer sponsored and skilled independent categories are roughly on equal footing with each other as well as having the highest allocation levels.
