Fitted fertility rates over age for refugees and non-refugees. Fertility rate over age as fitted by our combined parametric and semi-parametric model, for socio-economic status values of 1.445, 2.46, and 3.44, and years 2001, 2005, and 2009, for the refugee and non-refugee populations of Agincourt. Parametrically bootstrapped confidence intervals (from 1000 samples of the model) are shown for the 50% level (dashed lines) and 95% level (dotted lines). These fertility age-patterns only show slight differences between the populations and the overall population, reflecting the convergence of fertility between them
