Family dynamics of immigrants in contemporary Sweden


Kirk Scott, Institutet för Framtidsstudier och Lunds universitet

Union formation and entry into parenthood are perhaps the most important transitions to adulthood. While much is known about the family formation and fertility patterns of the modern Swedish population, relatively less is known about how immigrants to Sweden behave.

Using multigenerational register data comprising the entire Swedish population, we examine the process of marriage formation, union duration, divorce and remarriage among the immigrant population. We also examine the process of becoming first-time parents for second generation immigrants in light of the fertility history of their mothers, their co-ethnics, and the native population.

We also study the extent that children of immigrants have assimilated to host-country norms in terms of entrance into motherhood, with a focus on the role of labor market status in the process of becoming mothers for groups from varying national backgrounds.
