Special Series on the Situation of Children in Immigrant Families in Affluent Societies

©UNICEF IRC - Innocenti Working Paper cover page


The findings presented in this series are based on data derived from sources of the countries' respective national statistical offices. In several cases, the basic estimates reported have been calculated directly by the national statistical offices on behalf of the country study teams. In other cases, microdata have been provided by the national statistical offices, and specific estimates have been calculated by the country experts.

The series supports and complements the UNICEF Innocenti Insight on 'Children in Immigrant Families in Eight Affluent Countries: Their Family, National and International Context' and includes the following papers:
