Psychiatric Disorders Related to Foreign Migration
Elizabeth Cantor-Graae, Ph.D., of Skåne University Hospital, Malm?, Sweden, and Carsten B. Pedersen, D.M.Sc., of the University of Århus, Denmark, examined psychiatric disorders associated with a foreign migration background among people living in Denmark. (Online First)
The study included individuals born between January 1971 and December 2000 (n=1,859,419) living in Denmark by their 10th birthday with follow-up data to December 2010.
Foreign-born adoptees had increased incidence rate ratios (IRRs) for all psychiatric disorders and had the highest IRRs for these disorders compared with other foreign migration categories, according to the study results.
“The extent to which a background of foreign migration confers an increased risk for the broad spectrum of psychiatric disorders varies according to parental origin, with greatest risks for foreign-born adoptees,” the study concludes.
