36. OK, took some doing. Here are the stats...

http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/Lookup/4102.0Main+Features20Sep+2010

The number of Australian residents travelling overseas for trips of less than a year has grown at an unprecedented rate over recent years. In the 12 months to June 2010, 6.8 million overseas trips were made by Australians, up from 2.1 million two decades earlier. In per capita terms, this was the equivalent to 31 trips overseas for every 100 Australian residents in 2009-10, up from 12 trips per 100 residents in 1989-90.

The real story is that when broken down, those 25.8 million trips overseas were taken by approximately just 13.3 million American residents. And that means that in total, the real number of Americans that actually traveled (took trips) overseas in 2009 for either business or leisure, was about 15.5 million --o r just five percent of our nation's 311 million residents!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are some caveats here. An overseas trip for an American on average is shorter. Mexico is considered overseas. The rest of Latin America and the caribbean is considered overseas.

When an Australian travels overseas, it's usually a big trip. The big population centers of Asia are even farther than most of Latin America.
