Indian born population on the increase in Western Sydney

India (http://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/Lookup/4102.0main+features102014#WHERE)

Indian-born migrants were the third largest population group in Sydney (87,000 people in 2011 or 2.4% of Sydney’s total population).

Suburbs where Indian-born migrants were most densely concentrated tend to be situated in the wider Parramatta area including Harris Park (43%), Westmead (32%), and Parramatta (24%). Nearby suburbs of Wentworthville (19%), Girraween (17%), and Rosehill (16%) also had large proportions of their population born in India.

In the last decade, the proportion of the population of Harris Park born in India more than tripled from 14% to 43% (an increase from 500 to 2,000 Indian-born people between 2001 and 2011). In Westmead, the increase was even greater, from 7% in 2001 to 32% in 2011 (from 700 to 4,200 Indian-born people). These increases reflect the wider increase seen in the Indian-born population across Sydney (and Australia) during this period, with the proportion born in India growing from 1.0% to 2.4% of Sydney’s population between 2001 and 2011.
