dc.description.abstract This research project explores the relevance of two factors related to the US-Mexico border region: Incentives to Immigration, Flows and Contributions of Remittance to Mexico’s Economic Growth. The border region of this study includes the following states in both the United States and Mexico: California, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Baja California Norte, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Nuevo Leon, Sonora and Tamaulipas. The analysis conducted on incentive of immigration fows is done through an econometric model based on push-pull factors and the analysis conducted on the contribution of remittances is done through a linear regression model. The results of these analyses indicates that, in order to explain the migratory fows from Mexico to the U.S., the factors related to the push factors associated with Mexican unemployment are more powerful that those of the demand-pull factors. In the matter of remittances, the fndings indicate that this does not explain the Mexican economic growth at state level, but they are signifcant in determining the past levels of migration fows to the United States. en
