MORA-RIVERA, Jorge; LLAMAS HUITRON, Ignacio  e  GARCIA AMADOR, Martha Cecilia. Poverty and Remittance Receiver Households After Twenty Years of NAFTA: Mexico 2010, 2012 and 2014. Econ: teor. práct [online]. 2018, n.spe4, pp.215-244. ISSN 2448-7481.

The purpose of this paper is to identify some possible effects of NAFTA´s trade openness on the reception of remittances and poverty indexes of Mexican Households in 2010, 2012, and 2014. We built a database for 2010, 2012, and 2014 using information from the Module of Socioeconomic Conditions of the National Survey of Mexican Household Income and Expenditure (Módulo de Condiciones Socioeconómicas, ENIGH). Remittance receiver households showed lower levels of poverty indexes than households not receiving remittances and households receiving national transferences. This suggests that remittances help to improve the economic situation of poor households. However, more research is needed on this topic before we can arrive at the conclusion that remittances are a means to get households out of poverty.
