Immigration, Immigrants, Health Status and Conditions, and Public Policies: Multilevel and Mixed Methods Approaches

Instructor(s):

This workshop is designed to work with researchers who examined health disparities/conditions, and health equity as it pertains to immigrant populations. A significant part of America?s changing demography lies with the growth and composition of contemporary immigrants to the U.S. A vast majority of immigrants are individuals and families from Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Immigrants can be differentiated as refugees, legally or formally admitted immigrants and undocumented.

Topics covered include the following: "the Immigrant (epidemiological) health paradox"; health status and access factors; role of culture, acculturation, and language; U.S. health policies, socio-political structures, and immigrants; capturing and measuring the multi-dimensional immigrant experience; transnational ties and health; health and countries of origin; data resources and limitations; and analytical approaches incorporating multilevel models.

This workshop is sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and ICPSR- Health Care and Administration and Resource Center for Minority Data archives.

Prospective participants should have a demonstrated interest in health and immigrant populations, with good analytical and conceptual skill.
