    This article examines the sociodemographic, including immigration-related, correlates of unintended birth among Hispanic immigrants. The study found that, similar to nationally representative findings, unintended birth was more common among younger women, single women and women not cohabiting with their partners, and women with more children. Additionally, women who had immigrated to the U.S. less than one year ago had almost a four times greater risk of a mistimed birth compared to women who had immigrated one to four years ago.
