Project content

The knowledge about healthcare needs of migrants in Germany is highly fragmented and often lacks an understanding of intersectional inequalities based on gender, country of origin, immigration status, and generational differences. Needs and health conditions can vary significantly along these lines and differ from those of the majority society. We will examine physical and mental health indicators to obtain a systematic overview of the health status of migrant groups in Germany. For this purpose, data from the Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) and the National Discrimination and Racism Monitor (NaDiRa) will be analyzed.
