MEJIA MODESTO, Alfonso; SOSA MARQUEZ, María Viridiana  e  SANDOVAL FORERO, Eduardo Andrés. The impact of migration on the population growth of the State ofMexico. Pap. poblac [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.97, pp.113-144. ISSN 2448-7147.

The State of Mexico, in last decades shows an important demographic growth. In such a way, we consider it relevant to be able to inquire about which of the components of the population equation -fertility, mortality and migration- plays the most important role in this increase. In this sense, it is important to be able to investigate the municipal differences that conceal great changes and differences, even more so in the State of Mexico, which by its geographical dimensions and demographic characteristics is extremely diverse. So this article comes from two basic questions: When will the population of the State of Mexico stop growing rapidly? What has been the impact of the migration? The main findings show that the growth of the municipalities that are part of the two metropolitan areas of the State of Mexico - Toluca and in recent years are mainly explained by immigration processes of adult population. In addition to the fact that the fastest growth corresponds to the municipalities that make up the second or third outline of the metropolitan areas, all this affects the growth of the new industrial army of metropolitan reserve, and even megapolitan.
