    After some decades of being almost forgotten, since the late eighties, the issue of economic growth has resurged again in the theoretical and empiric investigation worldwide. Nevertheless, in countries like Mexico very little applied research has been carried out; due to the fact, perhaps, that there are no existing official series of capital stock. This paper estimates the Mexican capital stock for 1980.I-2004.IV through the modified perpetual-inventory method suggested by Almon (1999). The outcome is statistic and economically consistent.// Después de algunos decenios de estar casi en el olvido, desde fines de los años ochenta el tema del crecimiento económico resurgió en la investigación teórica y empírica a nivel mundial. Sin embargo, en países como México se ha hecho muy poca investigación aplicada, quizá debido a que no existen series oficiales de acervos de capital. En este artículo calculamos los acervos de capital de México para el periodo 1980.I-2004.IV a partir del método de inventarios perpetuos pero corregidos por el factor de ajuste propuesto por Almon (1999), con el que se obtiene una serie estadística y económicamente congruente.
