Abstract

Between 1995 and 1999, about 20 per cent of mothers were born in non-English speaking countries (Table 44). The proportion of mothers from Asian countries increased slightly from 9.9 to 10.8 per cent, while the proportion of mothers from southern European countries continued to decrease slightly from 1.9 to 1.6 per cent.
