Each Mapping Social Cohesion national survey builds on the previous year and informs the Scanlon-Monash Index (SMI) of Social Cohesion. The surveys have been undertaken since 2007 where the original survey provided the benchmark against which the SMI is then measured.These surveys provide, for the first time in Australian social research, a series of detailed surveys on social cohesion, immigration and population issues. A prime objective of the surveys is to further understanding of the social impact of Australia’s increasingly diverse immigration program.Australia has experienced significant population growth in recent years. Since 2001, Australia’s population has increased by 3.5 million, from 19.4 million to an estimated 22.9 million as at 31 December 2012. During 2012 the population increased by almost 400,000 persons, 40% from natural increase and 60% from net overseas migration.
