New Data on the Fertility of Southeast Asian Refugees in the United States.
Gordon, Linda W.
Pacific/Asian American Mental Health Research Center Research Review, v2 n1 p3-6 Jan 1983
This paper examines the fertility of refugees from Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia residing in the United States. Data are presented from three major sources: (1) a study of births to Southeast Asian women living in Oregon in 1980; (2) a survey performed by the Department of Health and Human Services in 1981; and (3) computer files of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Preliminary findings discussed indicate that the Southeast Asian refugees entering the United States in recent years have borne children at a rate above replacement level and have an age structure more conducive to high fertility than that of the overall U.S. population.
