This second volume of the New political-social essay of the Mexican Republic, shows the inequalities and levels of poverty present in Mexico and in each of its states. The book is based on the power of the data from the Population and Housing Censuses of 1940, 1950 and 1960 to discover the main sociodemographic characteristics of the country.
The research that the readers have in their hands is an unprecedented investigation in Mexico, through which the history of the deepest sociodemographic changes, mortality trends and social gaps that, in some cases, have ancestral roots, is reconstructed. and in others, they are the product of the socioeconomic changes that have been generated over the decades in Mexico, and which have unequal territorial expressions.
The book is written in the conviction that knowledge of the historical course of inequalities and poverty in Mexico are the starting point for reflection on how to reduce them and move decisively towards their eradication.
