The involvement of migrants in popular culture attracted more talented, ambitious and dynamic people to enhance the overall image of the country. This has continued into the modern day culture including sports. For example, the players of the Australian National Football Team - the Socceroos – have come from a diverse range of backgrounds, including Lebanese, Italian, German, Croatian and Anglo-Saxon. Migration has transformed the religious profile of Australia significantly. Before the World Wars, Australian society was grouped mainly into Christian denominations but migration has introduced many new religions into the culture.
Together these factors create a significant decrease in the percentage of self-describing Anglicans in Australia. This trend of decrease is made evident through the increasing trends of no religion, from 10% in 1971 to nearly 20% in 2006 and other religions, from 1% in years prior to 1971 to approximately 5% in 2006, thereby creating a reasonable impact on these religious affiliations. 2. The post-World War II era showed a steady growth in the number of adherents in religious traditions other than Christianity. This is contributed to mainly by the migration of Jews into Australia from Europe in an attempt to flee the Nazi regime.

The massive number of European immigrants that entered into America’s east coast from the late 1800’s and on forever influenced the growth and development of the country. Fleeing crop failure, famine, rising taxes, and land/job shortages, many immigrants journeyed to the United States because it was perceived as the land of economic opportunity. With hope for a brighter future, nearly 27 million immigrants arrived in the United States between 1880 and 1920. The majority of the immigrants entered through Ellis Island, leading it to become the gateway to America and become recognized as a national symbol. Many of the immigrants, not knowing the way America worked, didn’t stray too far from the East Coast and moved into areas filled with people of similar languages, traditions, and beliefs.
Gradual European immigration from Italy, Spain, France, Britain, and Germany followed independence. Chinese arrived in the 1850s, replacing slave workers, and have since greatly influenced Peruvian society. The majority of the people in Peru are Amerindians, mostly Quechua and Aymara, or mestizos who are of mixed white and Amerindian ancestry. With about 29.5 million inhabitants, Peru is the fourth most populous country in South America. Its demographic growth rate declined from 2.6% to 1.6% between 1950 and 2000; population is expected to reach approximately 42 million in 2050.
People stereotype a whole minority as one type of people even if its not true (Murry, 2014, p.277). This needs to stop as the amount of visible minorities in Canada is growing. Only 10.2 percent of immigrants were racial or visible minorities before the 1960’s (based on 2001 Census data). Most were white Europeans. Yet in the short time spend of ten years that went up dramatically to 51.8 percent in the late 1970’s.
The answers to these questions are not easy to determine, but data from the 2000 census indicates that of the 8.7 million immigrants aged 18 to 59 in the 1990’s, 5.6 million were in the United States labor force in the year 2000. Recent immigrants accounted for 41 percent of labor force growth in the 1990’s compared to only 11 percent in the
