Data Collection Innovations to Study the Health of African Immigrants in the United States

This project will (1) combine conventional probability sampling approaches with an innovative link-tracing sampling design to recruit representative samples of migrant and non-migrant households at origin (Ghana) and destination (US) and link migrants at destination with their families at origin; and (2) rely on peer-referral techniques embedded in NSN to follow members of these samples longitudinally in the US, in Ghana and when they return to Ghana, in order to understand the impact of migration on the health and wellbeing of African immigrants in the US.
