Fitted fertility rates over socio-economic status for refugees and non-refugees. Fertility rate over socio-economic status (SES) as fitted by our combined parametric and semi-parametric model, for age values of 18, 28, and 38, 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 95% level (dotted lines). Some slight differences between the refugee and non-refugee populations are shown, particularly in variation of fertility over time for 28 years old individuals. However these differences are slight, reflecting the convergence of fertility between the two populations
