This paper analyses fertility intentions of Albanian and Romanian women in Italy following an origin-destination perspective. Short-term intentions to have a child of Albanian and Romanian women living in Italy are compared not only to those of Italian women (host country) but also to those of stayers in sending countries (Albania, Romania). To account for differences and similarities among groups, the final dataset mixes microdata coming from several sources (FFS and SCIF for Italy, DHS for Albania, Eurobarometer for Romania). Ordinal regression models on fertility intentions of natives, migrants and stayers are aimed at testing theoretical models of adaptation and socialization, while controlling for independent variables that literature has proven important determinants of the intention to have one or another child.

Abstract

This paper analyses fertility intentions of Albanian and Romanian women in Italy following an origin-destination perspective. Short-term intentions to have a child of Albanian and Romanian women living in Italy are compared not only to those of Italian women (host country) but also to those of stayers in sending countries (Albania, Romania). To account for differences and similarities among groups, the final dataset mixes microdata coming from several sources (FFS and SCIF for Italy, DHS for Albania, Eurobarometer for Romania). Ordinal regression models on fertility intentions of natives, migrants and stayers are aimed at testing theoretical models of adaptation and socialization, while controlling for independent variables that literature has proven important determinants of the intention to have one or another child.
