Reason for immigration and immigrants’ health Carlos Vargas-Silva, Osea Giuntella, Zovanga Kone & Isabel Ruiz

Introduction

The existing literature on the health trajectories of the UK immigrants has mainly focussed on the relationship between ethnicity and health. There is little information on the role of immigration status and no previous information on the role of reason for immigration to the country. This study fills this gap in the literature by analysing the heterogeneity of immigrant-native differences in health by reason for immigration.
