Abstract

SANCHEZ RODRIGUEZ, Jesús Sergio; LUYANDO CUEVAS, José Raúl; AGUAYO TELLEZ, Ernesto  and  PICAZZO PALENCIA, Esteban. El desarrollo laboral sustentable y su relación con la migración interna en México. Región y sociedad [online]. 2014, vol.26, n.60, pp.29-61. ISSN 1870-3925.

This article studies the interaction between interstate migration and sustainable workforce development in Mexico from 2000 to 2010, based on Amartya Sen's philosophies. Sustainable workforce development was measured using the Social Competitiveness Index, and its interaction with internal migration was evaluated by estimating a simultaneous equations model. The results confirm the existing interdependence between internal immigration and sustainable workforce development; this means that higher sustainable workforce development generates higher immigration levels and vice versa. On the other hand, we did not find a relation between internal emigration and sustainable workforce development. When disaggregating the Social Competitiveness Index, we found a mutual causal relationship between a low poverty wage index and internal immigration. Also, there is a positive causal relationship between poverty wage index and an increase in internal emigration.

Keywords : internal migration; sustainable workforce development; social competitiveness; human development.
