This chapter examines the regional impacts of emigration on labor supply and labor market earnings in Mexico. The chapter is organized as follows. Section 9.2 documents how migration behavior varies across regions of Mexico and discusses the criterion used for selecting which Mexican states to include in the sample. Section 9.3 describes how changes in labor supply vary across high- and low-migration states in Mexico, and compares mean earnings and the distribution of earnings in high-hand low-migration states. Section 9.4 uses standard parametric techniques and nonparametric techniques to examine how earnings have changed over time in high- and low-migration states. Section 9.5 discusses the limitations of the estimation strategy and ideas for extending the analysis.

Keywords:   Mexican states, labor market earnings, regional impact, migration behavior, earnings
