NH research shows 50 percent decrease in Mexican migration to US


DURHAM - A study done by the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire reports that the number of Mexicans migrating to the U.S. has dropped more than 50 percent in the last five years.

In addition, the research concluded that those who migrated between 2008-2012 were of higher socioeconomic status, more educated and speak better English than those who migrated between 2003-2007.

According to UNH Media Relations, the research is based on American Community Surveys done between 2008-2013 that compared demographic and socioeconomic profiles of Mexican immigrants who migrated five years prior to each survey.

The research shows migration dropped 57 percent in five years.
