Australia has a high take-up of citizenship compared to other OECD countries. This chapter provides an overview of citizenship policy, citizenship trends, and the socioeconomic characteristics of citizens with and without Australian citizenship. It begins with an overview of the historical development of citizenship policy and its connections with the development of immigration and integration strategies in Australia. It then discusses the current take-up rate of citizenship among different migrant groups, and explores the relationship between the acquisition of citizenship and labour market integration.
