Assimilation, Disruption and the Fertility of Mexican-Origin Women in the United States.
Stephen, Elizabeth Hervey; Bean, Frank D.
International Migration Review, v26 n1 p67-88 Spr 1992
Using 1980 and 1980 census data, tests hypotheses about the effects of adaptation, assimilation, and disruption on Mexican-origin women's fertility. Fertility declines with greater length of familial exposure to the United States, suggesting that fertility behavior of Mexican Americans will come to resemble that of the general population. (SLD)
