Mexico fact of the day

Today, four out of ten married Mexican women are sterilised, a radical measure that partly reflects the continuing lack of other contraception in some areas as well as strict laws against abortion everywhere but the capital.

Mexicans in the United States are now more fertile than Mexicans in Mexico.  The full story is here.

So I'm thinking there is a selection story in here, but I don't know enough population and fertility economics to understand it. The Mexicans who immigrate here differ from those in mexico, but in what ways?

They obviously have access to contraception and abortion. As well as on average likely higher incomes allowing for bigger families.

You have done very nice work and I like your article very much. You have done a very nice job by sharing this information with us. According to me this is the best way of sharing information.
