Non-marital childbearing of migrants and their descendants: Russians in Estonia compared with Russians in Russia and Estonians
Revue detudes comparatives Est-Ouest, 2019
URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
Competing hypotheses—modernization and disadvantaged position—have been used to explain the emergence of alternative family and fertility behaviors. We analyze parity-specific fertility patterns in marital and non-marital unions, comparing Russian migrants and their descendants in Estonia to origin populations in Estonia and Russia. Women born in 1924-1986 interviewed in the Generations and Gender Survey in both countries (2004-2005) are included. Non-marital childbearing is most common among Estonians, and least among Russians (migrants) in Estonia. The cultural maintenance and socialization effect is confirmed rather than the disadvantaged position hypothesis in fertility differentials.
