During the late 1980s, many overseas immigrants settled in Sydney. This maintained the city's population growth despite high levels of out-migration. In the early 1990s overseas migration eased but, between 1991 and 1996, Sydney's growth remained constant and its share of the population of New South Wales increased. This development was unexpected but it can be explained by fewer people leaving Sydney, by young adults moving into Sydney from other areas in the State and by net migration losses from inland New South Wales to other States (especially Queensland).
