AbstractIt is well documented that incarceration results in a multitude of negative personal and health consequences. Nevertheless, it is unclear if different populations experience these consequences in the same way. Given the large literature on immigrant resilience, it is uncertain if this population will encounter similar challenges as natural-born citizens. Accordingly, this study will explore how immigrants are impacted by incarceration compared to natural-born citizens. Data from Waves I through IV of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) and longitudinal modeling will be used to: (1) examine how incarceration leads to within-individual changes in physical and mental health outcomes over time; and (2) consider how these effects vary according to immigrant status. Implications for theory and future research will be discussed.
