The main objective of this paper is to explain how resilient a sample of young migrants are to the stressors encountered at the slum through a self-rated level of resilience. Drawing on resilience thinking, the Youth Resilience Framework and Social Resilience perspectives are discussed and variables for analysis are considered from their synthesis. From the results, it is suggested that significant predictors of resilience include type of employment, social capital, number of stressors experienced, and ability to afford medicine
