In populations in which the frequency of illegitimacy is high, illegitimates and legitimates may be subjected to different demographic and social pressures, with social and genetic consequences.
A rural population from north-east Portugal is studied and variables from birth, marriage and death records are compared according to the legitimacy of the individuals.
The analysis shows important differential demographic patterns in infant and child mortality and in migration prior to and related to marriage, especially in women.
Some changes over time and gender differences are also evident.
