Tips on searching the migration research database

On the migration research database page, you'll see four different search options:

  • Migrant group – the ‘type’ of migrant that the research is about, for example asylum seekers, refugees, EU migrants
  • Theme – the research has been categorised into 8 broad themes for example health, housing and welfare, policy.
  • Topic – the topics are more specific than themes, helping you to narrow your search on a specific topic for example access to healthcare, housing patterns, managed migration.
  • Place – this is the area of the region that the research was carried out. You can choose from:
    • local authority areas [for example Hull, Sheffield, Wakefield] and sub-regions [Humber, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, and West Yorkshire], which contain all research which has happened in these places
    • ‘Yorkshire & Humber – region-wide’ which is for research which covers the whole of the region
    • ‘UK - inc. Yorkshire & Humber element’, which is for national research which includes this region as a substantial part of the research

You can search on one or more of these options at once, but you can only make one choice on each of the 4 drop down lists. When you have made your choices, click ‘Search’.

If you want to search for something in the rest of the website, use instead the search box which appears on the top right hand corner of every page of the website. This box doesn't search the migration research database.
