Abstract

North-western Italy has a long history of domestic influx, however little is known on how migrant mortality compares to mortality at the local level. While geographic mortality gradients may play a role, conceptualizations developed for international migration may also be relevant. Using this theoretical framework, the study investigated immigrant-native differentials in the north-western city of Turin through a 34-year follow-up that was facilitated by the Turin Longitudinal Study. The study population comprised inhabitants of age 30–74 years at the 1971 census.
