Report Says 82% of Aussies Support Australian Immigration
The philanthropic Scanlon Foundation conducted the yearly 2018 Mapping Social Cohesion survey. They reported four out of five Australians understand the benefits to immigration even in the face of concerns over population growth.
The responses of 1,500 randomly chosen Australians showed 52 percent consider the influx of immigrants either ‘too low’ or ‘about right.’ This statistic challenges some recent political and media narratives about concerns over immigration and the impact it brings to Australian society.

Melbourne’s Monash University researcher, Andrew Markus, said even with concerns about population management, 82 percent of residents surveyed said immigrants better Australian society. They agree they bring new ideas and cultures to Australian society.
Eighty percent also believe immigrants make a positive impact on Australia’s economy. Markus commented, “There are relatively low levels of concern about immigration from many different countries, about whether immigration is good for this country, creates jobs, gives us fresh ideas.” He said the indicators are very positive by large percentages of citizens.
The population of Australia has grown by an estimated five million, to 25 million in August 2018.
