Refugee/Immigrant Health Data

Is there any way I can identify data in your surveys are particularly related to refugee/immigrant health? Thank you!

The best IPUMS project available for identifying health outcomes is IPUMS Health Surveys, and in particular the NHIS data. Immigrants can be identified using the USBORNvariable in the NHIS data. This variable identifies if individuals are born in the US or not, and if they are born outside of the US if they were born in a US territory. Other ethnicity/nationality variables might be of interest to you. Directly identifying refugees is not currently possible in any IPUMS data projects. With that said, there are some methods used by researchers to indirectly identify refugees in these data (see this paper from the Migration Policy Institute).

Thank you so much! This helps!
