UNFPA Mexico

With a total population of more than 118 million, Mexico is now a high-middle income country with an advanced demographic transition, where birth and death rates are low. It faces wide economic and social disparities, however, and more than half of its people live in poverty. UNFPA has been active in Mexico since 1972. Current programmes address key issues such as the incorporation of population dynamics in local development planning and programmes; youth-oriented policies and programmes; the sexual and reproductive health of indigenous people, migrants, and youth; the prevention of gender-based violence; and comprehensive sexuality education.

  • The source of data for most country level indicators is the UNFPA country annual reports for 2014-2017, unless stated otherwise
  • Results featured are cumulative - i.e., achieved between the 2014 and 2017 timeframe, and reflect the net situation, true as of the year selected
  • Majority of the results are captured from 127 UNFPA programme countries
  • Indicators that are marked ‘not achieved’ could imply any of the following conditions:
    • The country may have achieved the result without the support of UNFPA
    • The country has not targeted the given indicator during the 2014-2017 period
    • UNFPA is supporting this area of work, but the result has not yet been achieved
