Kurzbeschrieb: Health differs between people based on a complex interplay of individual, environmental and community factors. Health inequalities between immigrants and non-immigrants as well as between people of different ethnicity have been extensively documented for the UK. Partly, these differences depend on time since immigration, as the health of immigrants can become more similar to that of non-immigrants over time.
Using 2011 census as well as other data, the research wants to contribute to the discussion by (a) examining if and how fast that assimilation occurs, (b) which individual level (e.g. age, gender, country of origin, ethnicity) and area level (e.g. deprivation, land cover, climate) variables acerbate or mitigate the differences in health between recently immigrated, not recently immigrated and other inhabitants and (c) in how far these effects vary between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
