Migration within Mexico: A Data-Based Exercise for Secondary Students
Dunn, James
Journal of Geography, v103 n6 p263-270 2004
People have been leaving rural environments and moving into urban environments. By 2007, the most people in the world will live in cities (United Nations 2002). Mexico illustrates this world trend closely. Mexico now publishes data on the Internet that can be used to study the movement of people within the country. A lesson is presented with selected new data connecting regional migration and job opportunities. Students create isopleth maps, analyze patterns, and make generalizations about patterns and processes.
