The welfare of young people with immigrant background: A study on young people with Somali and Kurdish background in the capital area (Unofficial translation)

[30/06/2014] [Finland] [Academic paper/Research] [Finnish]

Posted by : Country Coordinator Finland

Authors : Katja Wikström, Lotta Haikkola ja Tiina Laatikainen - Terveyden ja hyvinvoinnin laitos (THL)

There hasn't been much information on the health and well-being of children and the young with an immigrant background in Finland. This report introduces the main results of the study. The study was carried out in Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa in 2011 and 2012. The target group were children of the Maamu (Immigrant health study) sample families. These children were 13-16 years old at the moment they were picked for the study. At least one of the children's parents was an immigrant, born in either Somalia, Russia, Soviet Union, Iran or Iraq and a native Somali, Kurdish, Russian or Finnish speaker. The sample of the study consisted of 837 young people and 380 of them took part in the study. Out of those who participated, were so few of Russian background, that their results are not presented in this report. 72 % of the young with Somali and 52 % with Kurdish background were born in Finland.
