Survey of Mexican Migrants

Field Dates: 7/12/04 – 1/28/05

Respondents: Sample of 4,836 Mexican respondents age 18 and older

The Pew Hispanic Center conducted an unprecedented survey of Mexican migrants in the United States, including thousands who say they have no U.S.-issued identity documents. The survey provides detailed information on the demographic characteristics, living arrangements, work experiences and attitudes toward immigration of Mexican adults who completed a 12-page questionnaire as they were applying for a matrícula consular, an identity document issued by Mexican diplomatic missions.

Fieldwork was conducted in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Raleigh, NC, and Fresno, CA.
