While workforce participation and productivity gains are benefits, migrants also are likely to contribute more to tax revenue than they claim in government support, it says.

But the research acknowledges high rates of population growth can still heighten existing pressures on infrastructure and housing, and create congestion.

"To fully reap the benefits of immigration and population growth, Australia must continue to explore and address these issues," the report says.

The research comes at a time of heated debate within government ranks on whether to cut immigration levels from the existing 190,000 annual cap.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott has been leading the charge, arguing reducing migration levels would help drive down housing prices.

But the paper warns of "far reaching effects" of significantly lower economic growth unless current rates of migration are maintained.
