Extraits :

« This study investigated the association between migration and the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in childhood and adolescence. Worldwide migration flows were determined according to movements of the world population as measured by the World Bank since 1960, which classified countries as isolated, emitter, receiver, and transit. The prevalence of any mental disorder was estimated from a recent meta-analysis that included 41 studies (conducted in 27 countries) and 87,742 children. Meta-regression analyses were carried out using linear mixed-effects models covarying for the effects of potential confounders. »
