VARGAS VALLE, Eunice Danitza. A decade of changes: Formal education and transborder linkages of young people in highly urbanized areas of the northern border. Estud. front [online]. 2015, vol.16, n.32, pp.129-161. ISSN 2395-9134.

In the current migratory and economic context, this article analyzes the statistical associations between a set of educational indicators and two transborder linkages of young people in highly urbanized areas, having been born in the United States (USA) and living in households with crossborder workers, based on microdata from the 2010 Census. Further, the results of this analysis are compared with those obtained in 2000. Findings include the following: 1) the decrease in the number of young people living in households with crossborder workers and the increase of those born in the USA in the last decade; 2) the persistent positive association between being born in the USA and high school or university enrollment in 2010, in contrast to the negative association between these post-basic education variables and recent immigration from the USA; and 3) a null relationship between having crossborder workers at home and school enrollment at the post-basic level.

Keywords : education; youth; American citizenship; crossborder employment.
