Australia Named the World’s ‘Happiest Nation’ – Again

For the third year running, Australia has been declared as the world’s happiest nation. The report is based from Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Better Life Index 11 criteria which include income levels, education, health and work-life balance.

The happiness of Australians is considered greater than Sweden and Canada, countries also known for high standards of living. Norway and Switzerland rounded up the top five while United States stood at sixth position followed by Denmark, the Netherlands, Iceland, and the United Kingdom.

Survey participants said they encounter more positive experiences daily, such as good life, pride in accomplishment and enjoyment without being stressed.
More than 73% of Australia’s 23 million people aged 15 to 64 are employed, which is above the OECD’s 66% average.

Life expectancy at birth is also higher, at almost 82 years, 2 years more than the average.

A Strong Economy
Australia’s economy of the natural resource-rich nation has been boosted by strong demand from China and many countries in Asia. Its strong financial sector on the other hand has helped the country to remain stable during the global downturn.

The Australian dollar, presently trading close to 30-year highs is reflecting the strength of the country’s economy.

“Australia performs exceptionally well in measures of well-being, as shown by the fact that it ranks among the top countries in a large number of topics in the Better Life Index,” stated on the OECD website. Click here to download the full report by OECD.

Act Fast! Engineers and IT Professionals Have less occupation Quota

Act Fast! Engineers and IT Professionals

Statistics released by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) indicate that quotas (Occupation Ceiling) for Engineers and IT Professionals are being filled up despite Australia’s new fiscal year having just began on 1st July.

DIAC has therefore announced that remaining places will be allocated on a ‘pro-rata basis” for the rest of the program year meaning that only a few places will be allocated each month in the highest demand occupations to make them last for the rest of the year.
Below are six occupations presently affected:

  • ICT Business and Systems Analysts (67% filled)
  • Chemical and Materials Engineers (50% filled)
  • Electronics Engineers (39% filled)
  • Telecommunications Engineering Professionals (38% filled)
  • Other Engineering Professionals (36% filled)
  • Software and Applications Programmers (28% filled)

What is an Occupation Ceiling?

The Occupational Ceiling is a quota set by the Australian government each program year (which runs from 1 July to 30 June) for General Skilled Migration program. Once an occupation reached its celling, no further invitation to apply will be issued in that occupation until the beginning of the next program year. An invitation to apply (ITA) is a requirement obtained from the SkillSelect system to qualify for skilled migration.


After just 3 invitation rounds started 1st July 2013, 11% of engineering places are filled:

ANZSCO Title Ceiling % Filled
2331 Chemical and Materials Engineers 360 50%
