One may, however, identify one general trend: fertility levels of secondgeneration women are, in the main, between those of the first immigrant generation, and the birth rates of the majority population at destination (Kahn 1988 for the United States; Stephen and Bean 1992 for Mexican-origin women in the United States). Landale and Hauan (1996) observe a convergence between second-generation immigrants from Puerto Rico in the United States in terms of a delay of marriage, and an increasing share of non-marital births.
Immigrants were identified as a target population for applied social programs. (Macisco and Myers 1975, p. 1 Migration and Fertility 21 However, “a growing awareness of the need to incorporate the study of differentials within a major macro-structural context” developed later on (Macisco and Myers 1975, p. 111). The same applies to the Western European context, with its major demographic changes in the previous decades. This part of the chapter therefore summarizes the theoretical framework concerning the fertility of migrants and of minority groups, and brings them together.
As for any cultural channels of adaptation, the evidence is far from pointing in one direction. Fertility adaptation may have parallels in, or be inter-related with, other processes, mainly the choice of a marriage partner. Saenz et al. (1994) observe lower fertility rates for Asian women in the United States who are married to an American, compared to Asian women who are married to an Asian partner. Where culture allows for out-marriage, fertility behavior may also be expected to resemble that of the population at destination.
