A Multicultural Northern Territory: Statistics from the 2016 Census

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


The Demography and Growth Planning team at the Northern Institute have been working with the Territory Families’ Office of Multicultural Affairs to provide a compendium of information based on the 2016 Census and the multicultural profile of the people of the Northern Territory. These Census statistics show that around 46% of the population is culturally or linguistically diverse, with 26% being Indigenous Territorians and 20% born overseas.

The work in this project identifies the growing demographic, economic and social importance of our diverse cultural background. In this chart, our fastest growing migrant communities are identified.

The report is a series of files enabling you to access a large amount of data on key indicators about the Territory’s multicultural make-up like birthplace, ancestry and languages. Files are being progressively released on this web page so please come back soon to check out what’s been loaded.
