Resumen

This study presents evidence on the utility of including public insecurity indicators when assessing Social Welfare in Mexico. It estimates two multidimensional indices of social welfare using the DP2 method. The two measures (DP2a index and DP2b index) contain the following categories: (1) material welfare, (2) economic well-being, (3) subjective well-being, and (4) social capital. For the second, we included an additional category, (5) public insecurity, and examined its effect on social welfare. The results show that inclusion of indicators of insecurity, crime victimization, and homicides had a negative effect on social welfare within states. Specifically, trust in people, network membership, satisfaction with life, and happiness where reduced. Our results suggest that public insecurity should be a key consideration in the understanding of social welfare in Mexico.

Resumen

There has been a recent research growth in the intersection between health and behavioral economics. Some of this research has looked into the importance of the framing of the information delivered. Most of this work has focused on emphasizing the positive or negative effects of specific behaviors (e.g. quit smoking, improve diet, take a specific treatment, etc.). In this trial we will test framing in a different sense: encouraging beneficiaries to increase their effort without referring to the benefits or detriments of not following a specific action. As part of a government pilot program called Prospera Digital, pregnant women and mothers with babies less than two years old receive personalized SMS with healthcare information. Our trial consists on making a small variation to the pilot program with the objective of measuring the influence of motivational and socio-emotional content (MSE content) on women’s behavior and their babies' health outcomes. Two sets of messages have been designed: (i) the first set of messages, the control arm, removes most MSE content possible from the government trial program without affecting the knowledge that the messages intend to transmit; (ii) the second set, the treatment arm, exacerbates the MSE content without adding healthcare information

Resumen

Understanding food insecurity among older adults (OAs) is a relevant issue. Objectives:Perform a systematic literature review identifying how food insecurity has been measured and how it affects policies, and assess through a psychometric analysis, if experience-based food security scales (EBFSS), can adequately monitor food security governance among OAs. Methods: Research was retrieved from 4 engines and grouped into themes. A psychometric analysis compared a EBFSS's (i.e. the Mexican Food Security Scale) validity in households with and without OAs. Results: 58 manuscripts were synthesized and grouped into 5 themes. The EBFSS showed adequate psychometric properties among OAs. Conclusions: Among older adults, food security governance, can be fostered by an ecological and multisectorial perspective, and by using valid monitoring instruments.

Resumen

This paper shows an integrated assessment for energy planning and climate change mitigation in Mexico, as an international case study. The Mexico 2050 Calculator was used to run a number of low carbon future scenarios by 2050. The calculator consists of a whole-systems model, which combines the main sectors of the Mexican economy into a single visual tool. By integrating energy and carbon dynamics across all sectors and carrying out a sensitivity analysis of the entire model, we compare four low carbon energy scenarios to assess current energy policy strategies in the country. The methodology proposed in this paper can also be applied to any other nation, particularly to those with similar models already available. Our findings show the relative impact of each sector and their various interactions for achieving Mexico’s ratified climate commitments. The paper also includes policy recommendations and highlights the need for scaling-up energy efficiency policy efforts in industry and transport, for having a higher focus on agricultural and land use policies, and for promoting integrated renewable energy policies.

Resumen

In this paper we used several data mining techniques to analyze the coevolution of hydrogeological and socioeconomical data for the Toluca Valley in Mexico. We found non trivial relations between two historic data bases that make clear that groundwater and economy may be much more linked than it was thought before. In particular, we found that hydrogeological data trends change during economical crisis and election years in Mexico. This shows that different macroeconomical policies implemented by several administrations have a direct impact in the way groundwater is used. We also found that hydrogoelogical data evolve in the direction of population transformation from rural to urban, which could represent a whole paradigm shift in groundwater management with profound repercussions in policy making.

Resumen

Multidimensional poverty measurement has captured the attention of policy-makers and researchers during recent years. Mexico is one of the most advanced countries in the measurement of poverty beyond income indicators. However, both in Mexico and other countries which have attempted at measuring poverty from a multidimensional perspective, the environmental dimension, has been well under-represented. Based on international evidence and, using the welfare-rights based methodological framework used in Mexico to measure multi-dimensional poverty officially, the paper proposes an indicator and six sub-indicators for measuring the lack of a minimum welfare to fulfil the right to a healthy environment through 6 sub-indicators measuring effective access, quality and continuity with regards to water, energy, biodiversity, air, spatial health, waste management and the vulnerability to poverty from climate change impacts.

Resumen

Objective: We assessed the association between depression and elder abuse, and the mediation effect of social support among elder women in Mexico City. Method: A total of 526 noninstitutionalized elder women, residing in Mexico City and attending public community centers were selected. Logistic regressions and structural equation models (SEM) were estimated. Results: One fifth of the elderly women were at risk of depression, one third suffered some type of abuse in the past 12 months, and 82% reported low social support. Logistic models confirmed that depression was statistically associated with elder abuse and vice versa (odds ratio [OR] = 1.97 and 1.96, respectively). In both models, social support significantly reduced the association between these variables leading to study these associations through SEM. This approach highlighted that social support buffers the association between depression and elder abuse. Discussion: Findings underline the relevance of programs and strategies targeted at increasing social support among urban older adults.

Resumen

This project seeks to improve maternal health, birth outcomes and early child development, by empowering mothers through a SMS information system. The SMS information system is targeted at beneficiaries of Prospera, Mexico’s conditional cash transfer programme (formerly known as Progresa and Oportunidades). The SMS information system consists of appointment reminders, prompts to plan for birth and emergencies, information on potential concerns, and preventative health care advice. SMS are sent in a personalized manner using administrative information, medical records and the responses from the beneficiaries to SMS. The two-way system also allows beneficiaries to seek emergency care, report health concerns and change their regular appointments.  Three treatments variations will be evaluated with a randomized control trial (RCT) design. The first treatment arm will test the impact of the two-way information system. The second variation will test the SMS system with additional messages from local community members. Finally, the third group will test the SMS system with the additional component of enabling beneficiaries to provide feedback on the health services received. The feedback collected on the quality of the clinic services will be later used to provide incentives to clinic personnel.  Rigorous evidence about potential changes in habits, knowledge, health service demand, anthropometrics and developmental outcomes will be explored.

Fear of Crime in Mexico: The Impacts of Municipality Characteristics
Autores

Pablo Gaitán Rossi, EQUIDE-IBERO Ce Shen, Boston College

Revista/Editorial

Social Indicators Research

Resumen

In the last decade, Mexico, the second largest economy in Latin America, has seen high poverty, inequality, and increasing homicide rates, which has led to widespread fear of crime. Two important challenges to understand the elevated levels of fear of crime are the lack of agreement on how to measure it and the debate on whether it responds to actual crime or to a general feeling of vulnerability associated with poverty. Moreover, there is little research in Mexico examining the complex influence of social context at the municipality level, on the relationship between person-level characteristics and fear of crime. Using Mexico’s 2015 National Survey of Victimization the goal of the study is to estimate a two-level hierarchical regression analysis combining the effects of person-level predictors and municipality level context variables to explain fear of crime in Mexico´s urban population. Our results show that some person level attributes—victimization, incivilities, trust, police effectiveness, and collective organization—are consistently associated with the three domains of fear of crime: feelings of insecurity, perceptions of risk, and avoidance behaviors. The study shows that homicide rates at the municipality level are directly associated with feelings of insecurity and avoidance behaviors. In addition, high multidimensional poverty and inequality at the municipality level amplified the rate by which incivilities affect perceptions of risk. Unexpectedly, collective efficacy at the municipality level and collective organization to solve crime at the individual level were positive and significant predictors for fear of crime in Mexico.

Resumen

To examine factors associated with food insecurity among urban older adults (65 years and older). Three hundred and fifty two older adults attending community centers in a neighborhood of Mexico City were surveyed for food insecurity, functional impairments, health and mental health status; cash- transfer assistance, socio- demographic characteristics, social isolation, and the built food environment. Having at least primary education and receiving cash- transfers were significantly associated with a lower probability of being moderately- severely food insecure (OR=0.478 and 0.597, respectively). The probability of moderate- severe food insecurity was significantly higher among elderly at risk of depression (OR=2.843), those with at least one activity of daily living impaired (OR=2.177) and those with at least one instrumental activity of daily living impaired (OR=1.785). Higher educational attainment and cash- transfers may have a positive influence on reducing food insecurity. Depression and functional limitations may increase the likelihood of food insecurity among older adults.

Resumen

Forests are complex systems, and it is necessary to include this characteristic in every forest definition, in order to consider the restriction that this imposes in terms of prediction and control. This loss of predictability and controllability should be incorporated in every Environmental Impact Assessment or management program. We present two case-studies located in Mexico and one in the US to illustrate three relevant indicators of complexity. First, we introduce an informational framework to measure the Zoquiapan forest systemic complexity. Then, we analyze complexity changes among different types of forest and management systems, related with spatial distributions, using data from a floristic study in the Montes Azules National Park. Finally, we analyze time series of CO2 fluctuations taken from AMERIFLUX data bases. Our results show firstly that it is possible to measure the systemic complexity of different forests, characteized by a criticality state (1/f noise) which has been proposed as a finger print of complexity. And secondly, that this characteristic can be used as a proxy of their state of conservation, where the lowest complexity values are found in perturbed areas showing the relevance of the concept and its measurement for forest conservation and management.

Heuristic Formulation of a Contextual Statistic Theory for Groundwater

Foundations of Science

Resumen

Some of the most relevant problems today both in Science and practical problems involves Coupled Socio-ecological Systems, which are some of the best examples of Complex Systems. In this work we discuss groundwater-management as an example of these Coupled Socio-ecological System, also known as Coupled Human and Natural Systems. We argue that it is possible and even necessary to construct a contextual statistical theory of groundwater management. Contextuality implies some very different statistical features as entanglement and complementarity. We discuss some interpretation about statistical entanglement and statistical complementarity in terms of groundwater flow theory and extraction equation. To this end, we propose a non-Kolmogorobian approach following the Växjö school of thought. One of the most straightforward conclusions is that in this way, a statistical-contextual treatment of groundwater management may not only give place to new flow equations, but it could have a profound impact in resource management. Then the new basic unity of analysis should be the indivisible pair (users, aquifer). We should not talk any more about aquifer dynamics or resource management plans by themselves. Physical and social systems are coupled in a statistical-contextual fundamental way, and a socio-hydrogeological theory should be developed.

Resumen

The present paper investigated the impact of the 2008 financial crisis on food security in Mexico and how it disproportionally affected vulnerable households. DESIGN: A generalized ordered logistic regression was estimated to assess the impact of the crisis on households' food security status. An ordinary least squares and a quantile regression were estimated to evaluate the effect of the financial crisis on a continuous proxy measure of food security defined as the share of a household's current income devoted to food expenditures. Setting Both analyses were performed using pooled cross-sectional data from the Mexican National Household Income and Expenditure Survey 2008 and 2010. SUBJECTS: The analytical sample included 29,468 households in 2008 and 27,654 in 2010. RESULTS: The generalized ordered logistic model showed that the financial crisis significantly (P<0·05) decreased the probability of being food secure, mildly or moderately food insecure, compared with being severely food insecure (OR=0·74). A similar but smaller effect was found when comparing severely and moderately food-insecure households with mildly food-insecure and food-secure households (OR=0·81). The ordinary least squares model showed that the crisis significantly (P<0·05) increased the share of total income spent on food (β coefficient of 0·02). The quantile regression confirmed the findings suggested by the generalized ordered logistic model, showing that the effects of the crisis were more profound among poorer households. CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that households that were more vulnerable before the financial crisis saw a worsened effect in terms of food insecurity with the crisis. Findings were consistent with both measures of food security--one based on self-reported experience and the other based on food spending.

Resumen

This article examines the impact of Seguro Popular (SP) in health services utilization, in the labor market, and in household health expenditures. Benefiting from longitudinal data from the Mexican Family Life Survey, we use propensity score matching techniques to analyze the data by gender and population origin. In general, the SP has not impacted the number of hospitalizations and out-patient consultations, with the exception of urban women. The analysis by institution shows that, in urban populations, the SP has increased external consultations in the health care facilities provided by the Health Ministry. The SP shows a negative impact in the Mexican Institute of Social Security coverage, and in the formal employment of urban women and rural men. At the household level, we do not find any effect on household health expenditures.

Resumen

Nonmigrant family members play a central role in facilitating Mexico-U.S. migration by maintaining families, sustaining social relationships, and overseeing household economic organization in sending communities. This study investigates changes to the emotional wellbeing of nonmigrant mothers when their partners reside in the United States. We hypothesize that partner migration affects mothers' wellbeing through three pathways: directly via the toll of spousal separation, and indirectly via changes to the economic profile of the sending household and through changes to mothers' household responsibilities. We test these relationships using data on 2813 mothers aged 18–44 in 2002 and measured in three waves (2002, 2005, 2009) of the Mexican Family Life Survey. We employ a fixed-effect estimation strategy that improves causal attribution of women's wellbeing to spousal residential location. We find evidence of increases in some forms of distress—sadness, crying, difficulty sleeping—when spouses are in the United States but no meaningful increase in depressive symptomology. Though partner emigration shifts several aspects of women's lives in sending households, changes to household resources or time allocation do not account for the moderate shifts in emotional duress associated with spousal absence. Importantly, additional tests reveal that we would observe large and significant associations between spousal migration and mothers' emotional wellbeing using a less rigorous estimation strategy, raising caution about the interpretation of cross-sectional studies evaluating wellbeing in sending homes.

Food Studies

Resumen

We studied how income distribution and food security status are related to the quality and quantity of foods consumed by Mexican households. Methods: First, we analyzed current expenditure on eleven food groups across food security levels stratified by income quintiles and food security status, based on 2010 National Income and Expenditure Surveys. Second, we designed and budgeted two 2,000-calorie-per-day diets which cover the daily nutritional requirements of the Mexican population to observe, based on the current income data from the surveys, which households could purchase such diets. Results: Those households that spent the most on food are also those that invest the smallest percentage of their income on food. Monthly per capita expenditure was greater on most food groups in food secure (FS) households and decreased as food insecurity worsened. Statistical analyses of current expenditure on food groups revealed statistically significant differences across income quintiles and food security levels (p<0.05). The standard diet’s weekly cost was US$44.89 per person. Households with an average weekly income per capita (US$71.17) and those in the fourth (US$65.25) and fifth (US$181.27) quintiles could afford it, but those in the first (US$14.0), second (US$27.59), and third (US$42.75) quintiles could not. We designed a special diet for low-income groups, with a weekly cost of US$17.79 per person, which could not be afforded by households in the first quintile, even when all their income went to food. Discussion: Based on a descriptive analysis we found that income barriers and food insecurity are related to limited access to nutritious foods and diets among Mexican households.

Resumen

Background: Older adults in Mexico are a growing share of the population and are a largely vulnerable group with increased risk of food insecurity and potential detrimental health effects stemming from it. Objectives: This study assesses the face validity of the Latin American and Caribbean Food Security Scale (ELCSA) among Mexican urban older adults of low socioeconomic status. Design: Qualitative study based on 4 focus groups. Setting: The focus groups were conducted in community organizations for the elderly in an area of Mexico City with a high proportion of poverty. Participants: The focus groups included a total of 36 older adults aged 65 and over who consented to participate. Measurements: Two initial focus groups were conducted to assess how older adults understood the food security construct and each of the ELCSA items. Based on these findings, ELCSA was modified and retested for face validity through two additional focus groups. Results: The initial focus groups suggested that several of the scale items were not well understood, leading to editorial modifications of the scale. The final focus groups indicated that the modified version of the scale improved substantially ELCSA’s face validity in this sample. Conclusions: The modified ELCSA led to a greater understanding of most scale items. Further qualitative research is needed to improve food insecurity measurements among older adults in Latin America.

Resumen

En este artículo se analiza la relación entre pobreza y vulnerabilidad, mediante índices calculados, ante desastres específicos para los estados de México. Una vez definida la distribución geográfica de la vulnerabilidad, se identificaron los principales factores que la ocasionan, y después se analizaron los programas existentes para atender aspectos relacionados con la mitigación de daños de desastres y el fortalecimiento de la capacidad económica y social. Asimismo, se propuso cómo redirigir estos programas para reforzar su efectividad, y se sugirieron otros que pudieran emplearse conjuntamente para lograr el mismo objetivo.

Demographic Research

Resumen

Population aging proceeds with other socioeconomic developments, including educational expansion. Improvements in educational attainment lead to changes in demographic behaviors such as assortative mating, fertility, and the intergenerational transmission of education, which change the health of the elderly and the education of their offspring generation. OBJECTIVE We examine such a jointly-changing process in South Korea. METHODS We apply a recursive demographic model (Mare and Maralani 2006) by using the Korean Longitudinal Study of Ageing (KLoSA). RESULTS First, improvements in education lead to improvements in health among the elderly. Intermediate demographic factors make positive contributions to this improvement. Second, improvements in education lead to a decline in the ratios of offspring to the elderly because better-educated people have fewer children. However, this decrease is not substantial. Third, improvements in education increase the ratio of college-educated offspring to the unhealthy elderly because of improvements in both offspring‘s education and elderly health.

Demography

Resumen

Although many studies have attempted to examine the consequences of Mexico-U.S. migration for Mexican immigrants’ health, few have had adequate data to generate the appropriate comparisons. In this article, we use data from two waves of the Mexican Family Life Survey (MxFLS) to compare the health of current migrants from Mexico with those of earlier migrants and nonmigrants. Because the longitudinal data permit us to examine short-term changes in health status subsequent to the baseline survey for current migrants and for Mexican residents, as well as to control for the potential health selectivity of migrants, the results provide a clearer picture of the consequences of immigration for Mexican migrant health than have previous studies. Our findings demonstrate that current migrants are more likely to experience recent changes in health status—both improvements and declines—than either earlier migrants or nonmigrants. The net effect, however, is a decline in health for current migrants: compared with never migrants, the health of current migrants is much more likely to have declined in the year or two since migration and not significantly more likely to have improved. Thus, it appears that the migration process itself and/or the experiences of the immediate post-migration period detrimentally affect Mexican immigrants’ health.

Power distribution, the external environment and common property forest governance: A local user groups model.

Ecological Economics

Resumen

This paper presents a recursive model that links power distribution imbalances with collective benefits and costs related to local common property forest governance. Using cross-sectional analysis of 38 local common property forest user groups, ejidos and comunidades, in La Sierra Tarahumara, Mexico, we test the impacts of power inequalities on different common property forest governance outcomes. Three measures of power inequality are used: intra-group power disparities; links between the ejido authority and external political forces; and asset disparities between the authority and the group average. The proxies of power were found to be a key determinant of forest change and other collective action related variables. The findings provide evidence in favour of the hypothesis that, with greater power inequalities within the group, agents with more power are able to impose higher costs on those with less power. Powerful leaders may provide positive externalities to the group in the form of norms. However, results indicate that greater power inequality tends to lead to more illegal logging and more forest degradation.
