Sources of Ethnic Fertility Differences: An Examination of Five Minority Groups
Gurak, Douglas T.
Social Science Quarterly, 59, 2, 295-310, Sep 78
The study investigated why several minority groups in the United States have average fertility rates that differ significantly from rates of the native-born white population. Data were analyzed for social status and marital characteristics. Findings indicated that fertility differentials are too complex to be explained by references either to social characteristics or to minority status alone. Additional research is recommended.
