Citizens quitting migrant hotspots, ABS figures show, by Rick Morton.

The council areas with some of the highest rates of overseas ­migration are the same locations where more people are leaving to live elsewhere in the country, ­according to an analysis of new population data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
