Interestingly I read a news report that states the following,
It seems that only NSW has increased its immigrant inflow.
IMMIGRATION has slowed in half of Australian states with New South Wales one of the few states to increase migration.
NSW's rate rose compared to last year by 9.4% or 6300 people as Queensland's rate fell 24% with nearly 10,000 migrants coming to the state in the year to June.
Western Australia's migrant intake dropped by 40% or almost 20,000 people over the same period - on par with the Northern Territory (down 40% or 2000 people) and dropped further than the Australian Capital Territory (down by 700 people or 25%).
The Australian Bureau of Statistics Australian Demographics report, released this month, found all states had population increases from migration over the 12 months.
