About the Presentation for the Fall 2020 MPRC Online Seminar Series

Drawing on literature that takes a transnational perspective, we standardize and integrate data collected in France (the destination country in our study) and data collected in six high-fertility African countries (the senders).  Through descriptive and multivariate analyses with entropy weights, we show that there is much more evidence of migrant fertility adaptation in the first generation when migrant women are compared to women in origin countries rather than destination countries.  We also discuss and analyze the role of selection into migration and disruption of family formation processes upon migration to provide a fuller understanding of processes surrounding migrant fertility.
