This project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, digitizes and makes accessible Mexican state statistical abstracts from 1994-2000 for all 31 Mexican states.

The print volumes are available by chapter in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). More information about PDF files

Excel spreadsheets are available for individual statistical tables from socio-demographic and economic chapters for 1994, 1996, 1998, and 2000. More information about Excel spreadsheets
