LEON SALAS, Beatriz. La contribución demográfica de la inmigración: el caso de España. Polít. cult. [online]. 2005, n.23, pp. 121-143. ISSN 0188-7742.
In the last quarter of the 20th century, Spain became a society of immigration, in conjunction with other demographic trends, such as increased life expectancy and falling fertility rates. In this new context, immigration has received greater attention because it is considered an option, or even a solution, for tackling potential demographic imbalances. This article studies the demographic contribution of immigration in the new demographic order, and presents two perspectives from which the contribution of immigration can be seen: a direct one, through the entry of immigrants, and an indirect one, through fertility rates.
