Mexico: indigenous and afro-descendant population 2015

In 2015, around 21.5 percent of inhabitants in Mexico fully agreed with defining themselves as indigenous, while only 1.16 percent considered themselves afro-descendants. In addition, 1.59 percent thought of themselves as partly indigenous, and 0.5 percent as partly afro-descendant.

Relations between Mexico and the United States

As neighboring North American countries, Mexico’s relationship with the United States has been a priority in both countries' foreign policies. From an economic, social, and political standpoint, their relations have been stable, but there have been major conflicts between the two countries. One conflict primarily revolves around the drug war taking place in Mexico. Over the course of the mid to late 2000s, drug-related murders in Mexico increased by the thousands every year, primarily due to the ongoing drug war between drug cartels and the Mexican government. Another continuing dispute between the two countries is the high volume of emigration from Mexico to the United States.

Mexico's labor market

With a growing population and a stable, but recovering economy, Mexico has significantly improved its unemployment rate during the past decade. The majority of its workforce is divided into three economic sectors; agriculture, industry and services, with the majority of workers being located in the service industry.
