Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It has traditionally been considered that the Mexican Revolution produced a high migratory flow towards the United States, for there is evidence of a noticeable increase in the number of Mexicans living in the U.S. after the armed period of the Revolution was over. However, this number of Mexicans represents barely one percent of Mexico's population at that time. It is possible to say that the Revolution was only one of many conditions that together contributed to increase Mexican migration, and among which we must consider economic aspects, especially regarding migration to California and Texas.Several U.S. data sources have allowed researchers to estimate the amount of migrants who arrived to the U.S. during the Mexican Revolution, and this work attempts to determine the percentage that may be associated specifically to the conflict, in order to assess its impact on U.S. demographic conditions.
