This brief presents findings from the analysis of results from twelve countries participating in the Health Behaviour in School-Aged Children (HBSC) 2006 Study. In these twelve countries, school children who were foreign-born were self-identified to have stratified data on this section of the adolescent population. Foreign-born children were compared to their native peers in relation to family affluence, relationship with parents and friends, school life and perception, and involvement in health risk behaviour.
