    Description:

    This study provides new evidence on TB-related hospitalizations among new immigrants to Canada. It uses a unique linked data file (2000-to-2013 Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB) linked to the Canadian Institute for Health Information's Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) from 2001/2002 to 2013/2014) that brings together information from immigrant landing records and hospital data for a maximum of 13 years to identify a TB-related hospital event after landing. Specifically, this paper provides a profile of the timing of TB-related acute care hospitalization, starting from the time of landing among immigrants who officially landed in Canada from 2000 to 2013, as well as an estimation of the burden of TB hospital care in Canada incurred by these recent immigrants relative to the total Canadian population.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201500314143

  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M2014363
    Description:

    Studies of immigrant well-being primarily focus on economic outcomes. However, immigrants often cite a desire to improve their general quality of life as their main motivation for migrating. This study compares life satisfaction among recent immigrants in Canada with life satisfaction in their country of origin and with the Canadian-born population, and provides an evaluation of the role that national-level economic and social factors play in immigrants’ life satisfaction.
