Mexican Migration Project
While helping a student recently, I learned of the Mexican Migration Project. This yearly study of Mexican migrants randomly samples households in communities throughout Mexico, gathers social, demographic, economic information and also information about each person's first and last trip to the United States. A year-by-year history is compiled from heads of households regarding migration to the United States, employment, earnings, and use of social services. The student and I located this site in trying to locate information about money sent back to Mexico by Mexicans in the U.S. The Project has centers in Mexico and at Princeton University.
