Discerning adaptation and disruption in the childbearing behaviour of immigrants in Greece: an analysis using micro-census data
This paper uses micro-data from the 2001 census of Greece to detect changes in the reproductive behaviour of recent immigrants. The analysis is based on descriptive methods and ordinal logistic regression models. Possi-ble disruption and adaptation effects are investigated for different citizenships. The findings indicate that Albanians, who represent over half of the immi-grants and originate from a high fertility country, show signs of reducing levels with increasing duration of residence consistent with the adaptation hypothe-sis. By contrast, for migrants from other Balkan and Eastern European coun-tries there is some indication of a disruption in childbearing among recent ar-rivals.
