The most recent data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia is examined to study self-assessed health among immigrants and whether their self-assessed health deteriorates the longer they stay in Australia. Immigrants from English-speaking countries have higher self-assessed health than native-born Australians, while migrants from ‘other’ countries tend to have no difference or worse health relative to the Australian born. Multivariate analysis confirms that immigrant health deteriorates with increasing duration of residence.
