Birth Replacement Ratios. A final method for estimating the contribution of immigration to period population change makes use of birth replacement ratios, which are calculated as the ratio of the number of births in a given year to the weighted mean of births of the previous generation of mothers; for a specific population, it can be interpreted as the ratio of current births to births that occurred about 20 to 40 years ago.

In the model, we first calculate a zeroimmigration scenario, setting both the immigration and emigration component (emigration is limited to the foreign-born for this assumption, which means that emigration of the Canadian-born may occur) to zero for a period and hold all other components fixed. This “experiment” – that is, the difference between the zeroimmigration scenario and the actual case – provides an estimate of the overall effect of immigration in combination with the future generations born to immigrants.

Figure 1 and Table 1 presents estimates for immigration, emigration, and net immigration (immigration minus emigration) from 1851 to 2006. Emigration reached a peak of about 680,000 per decade in the first two decades of the twentieth century. Current levels of emigration are now considerably less, both in numerical and percentage terms. There were about 440,000 emigrants over the 1991-2001 decade. As a result, the gains from net immigration today are almost twice as large as in the first decade of the 20th century.
