Notes

• From 1886 to 1948 Burma was administered by Britain.

• Although Burma became a separate, self-governing colony in 1937, and gained independence from Britain in 1948, this was not reflected in the Victorian census until 1961.

• In 1989 Burma adopted the name ‘Union of Myanmar’. This name change, while accepted by the United Nations, is not recognised by the Australian Federal Government.
