Racial Identity and Fertility Outcomes among Hispanic Origin Groups in the United States, 2011-2015

Working Paper Number SEHSD-WP2017-19
Brittany Rico


Fertility differentials across race and ethnicity often focus on comparing the following three categories: (1) all race groups not differentiated by Hispanic origin, (2) Hispanic people of any race group, and (3) the non-Hispanic White alone population. Less research has focused on fertility by race of Hispanic origin groups. Using data from the 2011-2015 American Community Survey 5-year PUMS files, this study examines whether fertility varies by race of Hispanic origin groups compared to non-Hispanic Whites. Additionally, this study examines, for each Hispanic origin group, whether recent fertility varies by those who reported their race as Black alone or Some Other Race alone compared to those who reported their race as White alone.
