GRANDE, Rafael  and  GARCIA GONZALEZ, Juan Manuel. Migration and Fertility of Peruvian Women in Chile and Spain. Migr. Inter [online]. 2019, vol.10, e2089.  Epub Jan 01, 2019. ISSN 2594-0279.

The aim of this paper is to compare the reproductive behavior between the Peruvian migrations South-South to Chile and South-North to Spain. We analyze different fertility indicators constructed from microdata to Chile Population Census (2012), Peru Population Census (2007) and Spanish Natural Population Movement (2007). The results show important differences in fertility between South-South and South-North Peruvian migrants, associated with the different patterns of selectivity, the greater weight of socialization in South-South migrants, and the importance of reception contexts in the degree of integration into the reproductive behavior of the host country.

Keywords : fertility; South-South migration; selectivity; Chile; Spain.
