Are most Australians descendants of criminals?

Answer:

Most sources give a number near or around 20% as to the number of Australians descended from criminals, but even this is a difficult number to confirm. This percentage is taken from direct descendants of people who’s ancestors were transported from Great Britain, but it does not include extended family who may have married a transportee or other forms of connection. In short, most Australians are not descended from criminals.
