Summary/Abstract: According to data from 2015 Intercensal Survey, carried out by the Mexican National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), the total number of people born abroad in Mexico is slightly more than 1 million. The most important contingent of foreigners in Mexico is of American origin, which according to INEGI totals 740,000 people. Of the total number of Americans, those between 15 and 29 years old total 154,400, and represent 21% of the total number of Americans. To put this figure into perspective, it is enough to say that Guatemalans with a population of 42,800 in 2015 was the second largest contingent of foreigners in Mexico. This indicates that young Americans represent almost four times the total number of Guatemalans in the country.
