A COMPARISON OF FERTILITY ADAPTATION BETWEEN MEXICAN IMMIGRANTS TO THE U.S. AND INTERNAL MIGRANTS IN MEXICO
BUN SONG LEE
This paper compares fertility levels of Mexican internal migrants with United States immigrants from Mexico, in an attempt to shed light on the issues of selection and adaptation in immigration literature. The data show that U.S. immigrants from Mexico have similar levels of fertility to those of urban-urban migrants in Mexico. Though somewhat speculative, the analyses suggest that some fertility adaptation does take place. New directions for research which would be of a less speculative nature are discussed.
