Abstract

One of the main arguments against increased immigration is that it puts pressure on public services, by ‘crowding out’ other parts of the population. Using evidence from Germany and the UK, Jonathan Wadsworth investigates immigrants’ use of health services, finding that while there may be some difference in health outcomes, immigrants do not use health services substantially more than the native-born population.
