NAJERA, Jéssica  e  COBO, Salvador. Immigrant women in Mexico: their socio-demographic profiles and patterns of labor participation. Pap. poblac [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.68, pp.191-218. ISSN 2448-7147.

The intention of the article is to study the demographic profiles study of the feminine immigrant population in Mexico, as well as the description of the labor's profiles participation into the national labor market. The 2000 Population's census has been used as a base for this study. Out the little fewer than 500 thousand people born in another country registered in the census, 2000, 49.4 percent are women (243 280); of these, 80 percent have stated being born in the United States, Guatemala and Spain (170 thousand, 12 thousand and 10 thousand women respectively). The immigrant feminine population fluctuates in labor-age range, and they are immigrants with a young-adult profile, whose age on average was 46 years of age in 2000. The socio-demographic profile for many of the immigrants is in its totality alike; "economically active population" (EAP) differs according to the homeland. We would like to enhance a point: women from Guatemala and El Salvador enter into non-described manual occupations mainly, where only the half of them is an employee, a quarter is an independent worker and half of them earn the minimum wage a month, among other features. Whereas the Colombian, Cuban and Argentinean women show the highest percentage as professionals and managers at the job posts, at least two third parts are employees and have an income of more than five minimum wages.
