Mexico: Country Report

Powerful Essays
Topics: Mexico, Mexico City
Mexico has unequivocally become integral to the United State 's (US) economy.
It ranks as one of the US 's most important trading partners. Through foreign direct investment from the north, the development of a skilled workforce, and a free market economy, Mexico has developed into an economic power. Despite a shaky history riddled with debt, the country as a whole has recovered. To compare elements of cultures across nations, we try to formulate similarities in beliefs, practices, and situations. Mexico, while distinctly different from the US, holds many cultural similarities that translate well into other countries. Mexico sits south of the US on 1,972,550 sq km of total area. As of 2006, 107.5 million people inhabited the 1,923,039 sq km of land area in the country. (CIA Factbook, 2006) Due to the high birthrate in the country, the population has grown an average of 2% annually since 1975. This continues despite the large amount of Mexican expatriates that migrate illegally to the US. It had been estimated in the nineties that over 4 million Mexicans resided abroad, the large majority of them living just north of the border. Add on the latest estimate that there were 94 million US-Mexico border crossings last year, and it 's quite clear that it has been difficult to set a hard number on that particular population. (Watts, 2005) The population is distributed fairly evenly among both sexes, with females holding a slight majority at around 51%. The majority of the population is concentrated between the ages of 16 and 64, holding 64% of the total. The 0-14 age demographic is surprisingly strong with 30% of the total population, leaving 6% for the 65+ population. The vast majority of the inhabitants of the country reside in urban areas, dispersed at 75% of the total population, which can be quantified even further when evaluating the following statistics. While the country is divided up into 31 individual states and a Federal District, 22% of the country 's
