In 2009‐10, permanent migration to Australia decreased by 7%, the first decline in seven years. Still, with about 207 000 permanent migrants (excluding returning Australian citizens), it was the second largest intake ever and more than twice the level of a decade earlier. 82% of the permanent migrants were admitted under the migration program ‐ around two‐thirds through the skill stream (including accompanying family) and one‐third through the family stream ‐ and 7% through the humanitarian programme. Within the skill stream, the proportion of employer‐sponsored places has continued to increase from 33% in 2008‐09 to 39% in 2009‐10. In addition, 24 300 New Zealanders entered Australia under the 1973 Trans Tasman Travel Arrangement. For 2010‐11, the overall size of the permanent migration and humanitarian programmes is maintained at 2009‐10 levels, but with an additional 5 800 places in the skill stream and offsetting reductions in the family stream.
