ABSTRACT

Children in Immigrant Families in Eight Affluent Countries presents internationally comparable data for this group of children, drawing on research conducted in eight advanced industrialized countries: - Australia, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States - that together include almost 40 per cent of all persons in the world living outside their countries of birth.
 
The study provides detailed information on the situation of these children over a broad range of dimensions, including family composition, educational background and working status of parents, and housing conditions, school and labour market participation and poverty status of children, presenting statistics broken down by region and GDP level of the country of origin.
