Summary
Abstract: GIS of Mexican States, Municipalities and Islands consists of attribute and boundary data for 1990. The attribute data include population, language, education, literacy, housing units and land cover classification from the 1990 Mexican population and housing census. The boundary data associated with the United States-Mexico border are consistent with the U.S. Census Bureau TIGER95 data. This dataset is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).

The data in ARC/INFO Export (ARCE) format are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).

Purpose: To provide attribute and boundary data for Mexico for conducting assessments of human interactions with the environment.
