Chinese church attenders – a demographic profile

Attending churches is one of the ways for Chinese migrants to incorporate into Australian society. What are the characteristics of church-attending people with a Chinese background?

The 2016 NCLS surveyed over 6,000 churchgoers with a Chinese background. Here three groups of Chinese migrants are compared: first generation migrants who were born in China/Hong Kong (1st Gen), second generation migrants (both parents born in China/Hong Kong) who speak a language other than English at home (2nd LOTE), and second generation migrants (both parents born in China/Hong Kong) who speak only English at home (2nd Eng).
