New Trends in Newborns: Fertility Rates and Patterns in California

Laura Hill, Hans Johnson, and Mary Heim

Focuses on two determinants of fertility rates in California: race and ethnicity as well as nativity, or mother’s place of birth. Predicts that as the daughters and granddaughters of California’s immigrants become an increasing share of the women of childbearing ages, the state’s fertility rates and population growth will be lower than currently expected.
