Working Papers from Universidad Iberoamericana, Department of Economics

Abstract: This chapter presents a series of statistics on our current state of knowledge about the past and present numbers and characteristics of Mexican migrants. It presents available projections on the future growth of that population and the populations of Mexico and the United States. It goes on to describe new features of the migration in terms of origins/destinations, responsiveness to the economy, changes in circulation, and selectivity by education and gender. Our goal is to provide a basic picture of what we know today about the basic demography of Mexican migration using official U.S. and Mexican data sources. Some of these data are readily available in published or online sources, other data we tabulate ourselves using public use microdata, and some statistics are estimates generated by the authors using accepted methodologies.
