Yearbook of Migration and Remittances. Mexico 2015

By ,

The yearbook provides statistical information based on specialized sources on the dynamics and changes of international migration, analysing in particular detail the Mexican case. This body of knowledge is taken into account when designing public policies to deal with the causes and effects of international migration. ISBN: 978-607-95345-9-2


The 2015 edition has 10 chapters. Each chapter indicates which information sources have been used. The electronic version contains the links to the tables used to create each figure or map. The first chapter discusses the general characteristics of international migration, running through the origin and destination regions, the countries with the largest number of international immigrants and emigrants, the four directions in which emigration heads and the busiest world corridors. The second chapter describes the main sociodemographic and labor variables of Mexican migrants in the United States, one of the largest immigrant groups in the world. This edition presents disaggregated information by age groups, which allows us to analyse the different behaviour patterns of this population mass living in the U.S. The third chapter analyses the behaviour of labor migration flows between Mexico and the United States, focusing on flows by land and air, as well as the migrants sent back to Mexico by the U.S. immigration authorities.

The fourth chapter presents for first time a comparative analysis, looking at the components of international migration from Mexico between 2000 and 2010 at national and state levels, the results of which are integrated into the Absolute Migration Intensity Index. The fifth chapter examines the main sociodemographic and labor characteristics of returning Mexican migrants. The sixth and seventh present information about the two parallel realities: transit migration through Mexico and child migration, respectively. This explores in some depth the migratory flows by Central American women traveling through Mexico; and child migration, recorded by the Mexican and U.S. authorities; these sections also explore the information about underage Central Americans who have been sent back by the Mexican authorities. The eighth chapter looks at immigrants born in the US of Mexican parents; most of them are under 18. The aim of this chapter is to find out what difficulties this group of people has in accessing education and healthcare services. The ninth chapter considers the situation of refugees, people who have to leave their country of origin or habitual residence to save their lives or conserve their freedom. This chapter describes some of the trends in this area and their defining features, such as the source locations and the countries which have provided protection. Finally, the tenth chapter first reviews the distribution, origin and destination of international remittance flows; then it presents information on the specific case of Mexico, as well as the characteristics of households receiving remittances in that country. There is a glossary with the key terms used in the publication.

The Yearbook is a joint effort which aims to contribute to the analysis about international migration in Mexico, exploring and revealing the different facets of this complex, changing issue, one which is of supreme importance for the country’s further development.
