The present research was carried out in the institution Preliminary Reception Centre for Protection "Hortaleza", which belongs to Institute for the Child and Family in Madrid and is affiliated with the Ministry of Social Affairs. It describes the health condition of the local and immigrant teenagers who accepted protection and were admitted to the centre from 2008 to 2012. Quantitative variables and qualitative variables are described taking into account sex and origin. The previous study is part of the Doctoral Thesis titled "The Health Condition of the Teenagers at the Preliminary Reception Centre for Protection in the Community of Madrid (2003-2007)", and it is available in the webpage of the University of Córdoba. The results show that both the local teenagers and the immigrant ones who came to our centre presented a very similar health condition.
