Annotation Glusker (epidemiology, U. of Washington and Seattle and King Country) examines the determinants of the fertility of immigrants as compared with native-born women in the US. She investigates whether the differentials are due to socioeconomic and cultural differences and specifically whether the differentials are reduced with nativity, ethnicity or race, duration of residence, and/or across generations of residence in the US. Her data is from the Current Population Survey, June 1986 and June 1988. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
