MATEOS, Pablo. Geo-demographic analysis of surnames in México. Pap. poblac [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.65, pp. 73-103. ISSN 1405-7425.

The present article tries to demostrate the usefulness of analyzing the origin and geographic-historic distribution of names and surnames to study the migrations and structure of the population and demostrate its application in México. With diverse listings of frequent surnames from different countries, all of them processed in a relational database and in a geographic information system, we achieve limiting regions and cultural or social groups, which may be partiality disentangled by means of the analysis of the distribution of sumame frequencies. Nonetheless, it is necessary to carry out a deeper analysis with a larger number of surnames and a formal method of classification, which might include socioeconomic strata to use the validation of the proposed method at its full potential.
