Self-rated health and wellbeing of working-age immigrant – findings from the 2014 European social survey
The aim is to study the difference in self-rated health and wellbeing between native non-migrants and different immigrant groups: new (defined as having lived in the host country for 10 years or less), old (living in the host country for more than 10 years) and second-generation immigrants living in Western European countries. This study supports the healthy migrant hypothesis among both men and women. Among men, old and second-generation immigrants’ predicted health falls more steeply by age. There was some variation between migrant groups in wellbeing among those with low education.
