An econometric evaluation of daylight saving time in Mexico

Abstract

Since the First World War, several countries use daylight saving time (DST). However, evaluations of DST started until the 1970s. Given the difficulties of finding data around the moment in which DST started, econometric studies usually evaluate changes to DST.
