Summary This thesis investigates the differences in key health behaviour outcomes (smoking, physical activity and risky alcohol drinking) between migrants from English speaking countries (ESC) and non-English speaking countries (NESC) relative to native-born (NB) Australians over a 12 year period using the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey. The thesis also explored English language proficiency and socioeconomic factors as possible mechanisms through which health behaviour changes over time post migration. The results of this thesis enhance understanding of immigrants health behaviour trajectories which have important implications for the development of public health policies.
