On 27 November 2017 at SCOA’s Settlement Symposium, the National Centre for Longitudinal Data launched its first ever comprehensive report of the Building a New Life in Australia study.
Building a New Life in Australia (BNLA): the Longitudinal Study of Humanitarian Migrants is a long term project researching how humanitarian migrants settle into life in Australia. It is the first long-term study of humanitarian migrants to Australia and to date has released data from the first three waves.
This report provides a quick and easy reference for policy makers and service providers needing evidence to inform their work. It provides a detailed description of migration experiences, settlement experiences and socio-economic characteristics of a large group of humanitarian migrants. It also examines the association between variations in these characteristics and experiences with the settlement outcomes of respondents.
