Resumen

RODRIGUEZJAVIQUE, Daylín Cecilia. Fertility of cuban immigrants in the United States. A comparison with cuban fertility. Rev Nov Pob [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.24, pp.30-52. ISSN 1817-4078.

This research aims to study the fertility of Cuban women residing in the United States in the period 2000-2014, based on the databases available in the American Community Survey (ACS). With this information, were calculated indicators that assess the level and structure of fertility in the period, separating the sample by place of residence: residents in Florida and residents in the rest of the country. Thus, the fertility of the Cuban migrants in the United States is compared with that of the Cuban women in Cuba during this period. The results suggest that, in general, migration to the United States does not change the level of Cuban fertility but its structure. Even though residents outside Florida have slightly higher fertility values tan in this state, a more mature calendar of fertility is observed throughout the country, especially among Cuban adolescents, who in the United States show values almost fie times lower than in Cuba. Thus, the study provides a vision of the fecundity of Cuban women outside of Cuba that was not previously explored and opens gaps for further research.
