Abstract: This study focuses on the response of native fertility to immigration shocks. Following the Mariel Boatlift that increased Miami's total population by 5.5 percent in 1980, I examine the changes in fertility rate of Miami's native Black and White community. Applying the Synthetic Control method with data from the Current Population Survey, I find that the general fertility rate decreased more in Miami than in the comparison groups between 1982 and 1986. This suggests a negative impact of immigration on native fertility rate. Findings from this study are tenure asymmetric - native homeowners in Miami experienced little or no reduction in fertility rate while native renters experienced a significant fall in their fertility. I also exploit the impact of immigration on fertility intentions among Miami's native residents. The results are largely consistent with the findings for general fertility rate.
