Multiple-Origin and Multiple-Destination: The Fertility of Migrant in Europe

Studies on migrant fertility typically compare migrants and natives or different migrant groups in the same destination, but rarely migrants of the same origins in different destination countries. In this paper we look at migrants from multiple origins in multiple destination countries simultaneously. The idea behind this approach is that fertility of immigrants may be affected by the country from which they come (“origin effect”), the country to which they migrate (“destination effect”), and the specific relations between origins and destinations (“community effect”). We will combine the European Union Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS) and the European Social Survey (ESS) to compare immigrants (men and women) from 10 areas of origin in 11 destination countries in Europe.
