New Estimates of Aboriginal Fertility, 1966-1971 to 1996-2001
measures for the total aboriginal population and four specific groups, North
American Indians, Registered Indians, Metis, and Inuit. The “own-children”
procedure is used for deriving the number of births by the age of the mother
during specific years preceding the census. The major focus of the paper is on
the trends of total fertility rate and the convergence of age patterns between
various subgroups over the past 30 years. Strengths and limitations of the
method are also discussed.
