Elderly migrants feel less healthy than a native Dutch people



The Dutch, with Turkish, Moroccan, Suriname or Antillean descent, feel less healthy than people of Dutch descent. This is the strongest for the first generation of migrants. The second generation Moroccan and Turkish Dutch people feel much healthier than the first generation.

This is stated in the Central Statistical Bureau (CBS)'s annual report on Integration 2018. Statistics The Netherlands looks every two years in the development of Dutch people of migrant background in areas such as education, labor market, health, crime and building relationships. Generally, it's amazing that younger generations of migrants look more like their natives in many ways.

Turkish, Moroccan, Suriname or Antillean Dutch people are more seriously overweight than people of non-migrant background, one of the reasons they feel less healthy. The first generation is more likely to fight second-generation obesity-this also has to do with age: older people usually have more serious obesity than young people.

Wedding and children

The Dutch, with Turkish, Moroccan, Suriname or Antillean descent, married later and later. They also receive their first child at a later age of their parents. They follow the trend already used by couples with indigenous couples. Only women of Antilles continue to have children at an early age.

Relations between people of migrant background appear to be stable as those with autochthonous belongings, Statistics Netherlands noted:

"Almost three quarters of couples with a Turkish or Moroccan background are still twelve together. It's as often as couples of Dutch descent."

Statistics The Netherlands looked at all the couples that married in 2003 or who started living together unmarried. Twelve years later it turned out that almost three-quarters of the couples on a Turkish or Moroccan background are still together. It is just as often as couples of Dutch descent. Couples with two partners from Suriname or Antilles origin more often divorced. Twelve years, about half was separated.

Relations between a man of Turkish or Moroccan origin and a woman of Dutch descent proved to be stable. Of these couples, just over forty percent is together for twelve years. Mixed couples from a Turkish or Moroccan woman and a man of Dutch descent are less common, but less likely to be divorced. The stability of these relationships varies from 55 percent (Moroccan woman, Dutch man) to 67 percent (Turkish woman, Dutch man).

Indigenous Dutch people are still on average highly educated than the Dutch with an immigrant background. Especially Turkish Dutch, and to a lesser extent Moroccan Dutch, remain behind. However, there is also a change among young people: children of Suriname, Moroccan, Anglican and Turkish origin received a recommendation from HAVO / VWO in the group of eight of elementary school in 2017 than in 2015. Especially children from Turkey and the Netherlands are busy catching up.
