Abstract

Although numerous studies have examined international migratory flows from Mexico to the United States, none have previously done so at the metropolitan level. This study utilizes time series data to econometrically model population change for El Paso, Texas, USA and Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, including net domestioc and net international migration for both cities. Results obtained indicate that such an approach may be applicable to other border city pairs elsewhere.
