The Australian Bureau of Statistics has reported that 25,000 people left Melbourne during the June quarter, while there was a 6,595 decline in the number of people coming to Melbourne when compared to the June 2019 quarter. Greater Melbourne’s net loss of 8,000 people was its biggest on record, while Greater Sydney’s net loss of 6,000 was its smallest quarterly net loss since 2016. Queensland recorded a net migration gain of 6,800 in the June quarter, while more people moved from Victoria to New South Wales than from NSW to Victoria for the first time since the June 2007 quarter.

Michele Levine, CEO, Roy Morgan Research: Australian opposition to Muslim immigration exaggerated

Morgan Poll Update – Page: Online : 26-Oct-16

In stark contrast to the widely reported Essential Research Poll in mid-September that claimed Australians opposed Muslim Immigration 49% cf. 40%, independent research by Roy Morgan shows Australians continue to support Muslim immigration (58% cf. 33%) as well as Asylum Seeker Immigration (66% to 25%). Five weeks ago, Australians were bombarded with the news that we, as a nation, or the majority of us, did not want Muslims coming into the country – based on a poll by Essential Research. I said at the time, in several interviews (Listen to radio interview with 2SER), that we believed it was highly unlikely that these results were true. Roy Morgan surveys over several years from 2010 to 2015, showed majority support for Muslims, refugees and others immigrating to Australia. We believed it highly unlikely that sentiment would have changed so dramatically. The latest Roy Morgan Research showed indeed Australians continue to support Muslim Immigration, albeit with a reduced majority. It is crucial that public opinion surveys on such important issues as this are independent and conducted with a sample which is truly representative of the Australian population.

A special Roy Morgan telephone survey conducted over the three nights of 18-20 October 2016 shows that 58 per cent of Australians support Muslim immigration, while 33 per cent oppose it. Support for Muslim immigration is down 7 per cent from a year ago (65 per cent support in October 2015), although it is up 4 per cent from July 2010 (54 per cent support). Meanwhile, 40 per cent (up 3 per cent) of Australians support immigration remaining about the same and a further 21 per cent (down 11 per cent) want to see immigration levels increased, while 34 per cent (up 2 per cent) want a population under 30 million in 2046, and only 24 per cent (down 6 per cent) want a population of 35 million or more.

Today’s special Roy Morgan survey conducted over three nights last week shows a clear majority of Australians (58%) support Muslim immigration compared to only 33% that oppose. Importantly, majorities of supporters of Australia’s major political parties support Muslim immigration as well – 51% of L-NP supporters (cf. 36% oppose); 67% of ALP supporters (cf. 25% oppose); 88% of Greens supporters (cf. 5% oppose). Only supporters of a resurgent One Nation party are strongly opposed to Muslim immigration – 87% opposed cf. 4% support. Previous Roy Morgan surveys have consistently showed a majority of Australians support Muslim immigration: A year ago in October 2015 65% of Australians supported Muslim immigration cf. 28% opposed; and in July 2010 54% of Australians supported Muslim immigration cf. 35% opposed. However, across a number of questions relating to immigration, and the ideal size for Australia, there has been a shift away from supporting growth and immigration over the last year. This is not back to the levels recorded in 2010 but does give a clear sense that Australians are becoming less open to immigration.
