Analysis, Research and Knowledge Management (ARK) within the UK Border Agency commissioned the Survey of New Refugees to look at the experiences of new refugees in the UK.
The survey collected data on refugees at the time of asylum decision (baseline) and on integration outcomes 8, 15 and 21 months later. Postal questionnaires were sent to those granted asylum, humanitarian protection or discretionary leave to remain between 1 December 2005 and 25 March 2007.
Home Office Research Report 36 presents findings from the baseline survey (5,678 respondents) on the characteristics of new refugees, their previous education, employment and qualifications, English language ability, physical and emotional health, and their social support and service needs.
