Mapping Australia's Immigrants

Australia's Special Broadcasting Service, a multilingual broadcasting service for ethnic communities, has mapped the top three birthplaces of immigrants in suburbs and towns across Australia.

Where Australia's Immigrants Were Born uses 2011 census data with the Mapbox mapping platform to visualize the countries of births of Australian immigrants. The article actually contains a series of maps, one showing the country as a whole, a number of maps covering the major cities and another map of the whole country which excludes immigrants from England and New Zealand.

On each of the maps you can mouse-over regions and suburbs to reveal the top three immigrant birthplaces and the percentage of the population from each of the top three immigrant groups.
