In relation to this FactCheck, The Conversation asked broadcaster Neil Mitchell for sources to support for his assertion that welfare payments for refugees are estimated to cost $100 million a year and that they have a 97% unemployment rate. He sent the following response:

Below are the sources. My attention was originally taken by the story in the Aus last week. The others carry links to the main report of the institute.

I confess to one error. I did similar on radio and corrected it. I said 97% unemployed and it should have been 93%. For some reason I had the seven per cent employment rate in my head and linked it that way.
