Michael Haan studies why immigrants make the location choices they do, and what impact these choices have on both their well-being and that of the communities they join. This research is critical to understanding the relationship between location choice and socio-economic well-being, and to preventing over-urbanization in some parts of Canada and population decline in others.

Haan's earlier work focused on housing and immigration, although the focus on inequality and stratification was evident there as well.
