Selective migration and changing health/deprivation relationships

28th April 2016 1pm, Edinburgh Room 1/G/8, Ladywell House, Edinburgh

Paul Norman, University of Leeds

The international literature often finds a 'healthy migrant effect' but for migration within countries there are propositions that people moving between areas as part of their everyday lives can influence health inequalities between areas. This talk will explore the inter-relationships between health, deprivation and subnational migration to show whether health-deprivation relationships are affected. This will include ethnic and age dimensions. Case studies for England and Wales and for New Zealand will be illustrated.
