The Growing Importance of Educational Attainment and Retirement Security of Mexican-Origin Adults in the U.S. and in Mexico
Recent demographic changes have led to a significant increase in the presence of Mexican Americans in the U.S., driven by immigration and relatively high fertility rates. It follows that the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of Mexican Americans have become particularly important in driving socioeconomic and demographic outcomes in the Americas. This chapter explores several of the implications of these outcomes, particularly as they relate to aging, educational attainment, and retirement security. Coordination of cross-border educational and pension/retirement policies between the U.S. and Mexico are also considered.
