The Survey of Migration at the Northern Border of Mexico, EMIF NORTE, is a unique data source to estimate and characterize labor migration flows from Mexico to the US. Operating since 1993, EMIF is the oldest continuous research program tracking original data on the number of people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, whether legally or illegally. EMIF is based on the application of a probability sampling approach of mobile population. The measurements are based on continuous and prolonged observation of the migration flows at the northern border. The cities and towns along the Mexican side of the U.S.-Mexico border constitute the main migration corridor between the two countries. With more than 90 percent of U.S.-Mexico migration flows passing through the border region, it serves as an ideal observatory.
The presentation will discuss the methodology and the main results of the survey. As a consequence of the economic recession in the United States, and many other factors, migration between Mexico and the United States reached a historic level of net migration zero around 2010.
