VEGA BRIONES, Germán  and  HUERTA RODRIGUEZ, Liliana. Households and remittances in two States of international migration: the cases of Hidalgo and Nayarit. Pap. poblac [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.56, pp.67-111. ISSN 2448-7147.

This article's objective was to observe the relation between size and sort of household and the reception of remittances from the United States in migrant and non-migrant's households from the States of Nayarit and Hidalgo. A descriptive analysis of some socio-demographic characteristics was performed, these causes are associated to remittances' reception in the households and it was found that the receiver households have heads of family in advanced ages, low schooling level, an important participation of women as heads of family, mainly in rural communities, mostly nuclear and extended households, smaller in size and own household, with presence of migrant and return-migrant family members from the United States between 1995-2000. In the second place, the important participation of women as heads of family in Nayarit and Hidalgo can be directly or indirectly associated with masculine migration.

Keywords : international migration; return migration; remittances; Hidalgo; Nayarit.
