Final Project – Poverty in Mexico

Every day thousands of Mexican citizens cross the US-Mexico border in order to provide themselves and their families the money and necessities needed to live a humane life in bearable conditions.

Poverty is a major underlying factor that contributes to many different conditions in Mexico. Fertility rate, household size, working conditions, corn production, drinking water, immigration, peace index and drug war violence are all influenced in one way or another by the poverty that plagues Mexico as a country.
With this project I hope to bring to light the problems and problem areas poverty is effecting in an easily understandable manner. With the reallocation of federal money and more resources contributed to the problems, I believe these problems can be reduced and quality of life can increase.
