Resumen

La pregunta central que guía esta revisión de literatura es ¿cómo se ha abordado en la investigación sociodemográfica la relación entre migración y fecundidad? En este trabajo, además de discutir algunos de los hallazgos en torno a ella, se hace un recuento de los niveles de análisis enfatizados, las fuentes de información utilizadas y los cambios ocurridos en la medición del fenómeno en el periodo 1970-2016. También se discuten los alcances y las limitaciones de las perspectivas teóricas a partir de las cuales se han explicado los niveles y las tendencias de la fecundidad de la población migrante, tanto en los lugares de origen como en los de destino. Con base en lo anterior, también se identifican rutas para investigaciones futuras que contribuyan a mejorar nuestra comprensión del comportamiento reproductivo de las personas migrantes.
