Immigration, health, and New York City: early results based on the U.S. new immigrant cohort of 2003


Abstract: This article was presented at a conference organized by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in April 2005, \"Urban Dynamics in New York City.\" The goal of the conference was threefold: to examine the historical transformations of the engine-of-growth industries in New York and distill the main determinants of the city's historical dominance as well as the challenges to its continued success; to study the nature and evolution of immigration flows into New York; and to analyze recent trends in a range of socioeconomic outcomes, both for the general population and recent immigrants more specifically.

Keywords: Immigrants - New York (N.Y.); Medical care - New York (N.Y.); Economic conditions - New York (N.Y.); Federal Reserve District, 2nd;
