  1. Impact of having one or more migrant parent(s) on the children’s quality of life in children with parents without a low educational level (column 1) or in children who do not speak a foreign language at home (column 2). Statistical analysis by mixed linear regression models with age and gender as fixed factors and preschool class as cluster with random effect. Results are presented as β-coefficient and (95% confidence interval). NS, not significant; *, p < 0.05; **, p < 0.01; ***, p < 0.001.
