ackground: Migrants in an undocumented situation (UM) in Europe constitute a heterogeneous group and are vulnerable, marginalized since they lack access to important welfare systems. The present study investigates living conditions and subjective health of UM living in Sweden. Methods: A cross-sectional study with adult UM was performed in the three largest cities in Sweden 2014-2016. Sampling was done via informal networks. A socioeconomic questionnaire was constructed and psychiatric symptoms were screened for using Becks Depression Inventory II, Becks Anxiety Inventory and The PTSD checklist (PCL) for civilians. Trained fields workers performed the interviews. Descriptive statistics, chi2-tests and logistic regression models were used.
