Officially 93 570 people in Australia claim Macedonian Ancestry. But the estimate is up to 200 000 Macedonians in Australia. Is this realistic? Is there that many who do not identify themselves as Macedonian?

Also is there any website where you can compare Macedonian ancestry to others. I am pretty suprised to see that Croatian Ancestry is apparently at 126 270. I thought Macedonians would be by far greater than Croatians in Australia. I want to see where Macedonia would rank in terms of Ancestry in Australia.

Bit random I know.

There a far more Macedonians in Australia than Serbs or Croats combined. The problem is a number of Macedonians are grkomani and boost the greek numbers while there's a few that are Yugoslavs still and then there's those that just identify as Australian even though they're Macedonians.

But they automatically become Macedonian when you start speaking to them. Is that magic ?

The SBS census explorer provides some interesting statistics. It's done by language use, not ancestry, so the numbers will be even less for Macedonians. It gives a vague overview of every suburb too. According to this, there are only 4 others (apart from my family) that speak Macedonian in my suburb lol.

Do these so called Yugoslav identifiers actually write Yugoslavian when it comes to Ancestry. I am actually interested in seeing how many wrote that in response to that question.

What you say about Grkomani may perhaps be true. Maybe more so in Melbourne but even here in Sydney I have seen some so called Greeks that dont really look Greek at all. Some of them definetely look like they are Macedonian rather than Greek. Not right to judge solely on the way they look though, but some just dont look Greek.

Yeah I have looked at it quite a lot its pretty interesting. However seeing the amount of Greek speakers in Australia makes me wanna puke
No wonder we have not been recognised under the name Macedonia by Australia yet, there is just so many of these Greeks here.

One thing I am always uncertain of is whether to list the country as Macedonia or Greece, as my family are from Aegean Macedonia: listing it as Macedonia counts towards the Republic of Macedonia whereas listing it as Greece contributes to raising awareness that there exists a large Macedonian community in Australia from what is now internationally seen as northern Greece.

List it as Macedonia. It is a homage to your ancestral land and removes the ambiguity that Greek statisticians will take advantage of to manipulate the results.
