This study aims to contribute to the regional integration analysis of the North of Mexico and the State of Texas, by using time series models. Our findings suggest a non-spurious relation between economic activity in Texas and economic activity in the Northern Mexican States. At an aggregate level, the activity of the north depends three times more on Texas than on the rest of the United States, and even more than on the rest of Mexico. Nevertheless, the evidence shows that intraregional integration within the northern Mexican states is very weak.
