Fertility of ethnic and religious groups in the UK

18th November 2010 2pm, University of Southampton, 58/1009

Sylvie Dubuc, University of Oxford

This seminar outlines findings published in recent papers as well as unpublished data on updated fertility estimates and recent trends in the TFR of the various ethnic groups in the UK (using the ethnic classification adopted in census and surveys since 2001 in Britain), fertility estimates of religious groups and most recent findings on fertility differences between immigrants and UK-born women of ethnic minorities. The seminar will present the method used to derive fertility estimates and an overview of the differences in fertility across ethnic and religious groups, including differences between immigrant and UK-born generations. Results will be discussed.
