Abstract

Between 2002 and 2006, about 20 per cent of mothers were born in non-English speaking countries (Table 85). Over the 5 year period, there was a slight decline in the percentage of mothers born in South East Asia, and a slight increase in the percentage of mothers born in South Asian countries.
