En la actualidad, se muestran los resultados de la marcación de artículos científicos mediante la herramienta gratuita Marcalyc, liberada en su primera versión el 1ro de septiembre de 2016 y que está pensada como un elemento central en la construcción y consolidación de un modelo de AA sustentable para Iberoamérica.
en: This article reviews the country’s macroeconomic developments during the period 1970- 2013, explores the transformations that took place in the territorial distribution of the manufacturing industry –using the number of personnel employed as a variable– and identifies the factors explaining the growth in manufacturing labor demand. The study universe includes cities with 100,000 and more inhabitants in 2010. The information used is drawn from the United Nations, and population and economic censuses. The results show contrasting processes, since Mexico City became de-industrialized, yet there was an increase in geographic concentration in most groups of activity. Furthermore, the factors explaining industrial location were different in the periods of relative growth and stagnation. Lastly, the article proves that no progress has been made in the productive efficiency of urban economies.>>>
en: Although cross-border cities are expanded through both sides of an international border, their urban planning and management is limited to political-administrative boundaries. Collaboration appears to be a local strategy to solve that dysfunctionality. Convergence and divergence on urban challenges can benefit or hinder cross-border planning and management initiatives. Collaboration opportunities are evaluated for the case of Matamoros-Brownsville, on the Mexico-United States border, where some collaboration initiatives have been jointly conducted along the last 50 years. There have been detected some convergent and also divergent elements on the urban challenges faced by both cities.>>>

en: This article describes an immersion in the social reality of the community surrounding the State Park of Fuentes de Ipiranga, an urban conservation unit in the city of São Paulo, the third largest remnant of the Atlantic Forest in the municipality. The case study presented here describes the participatory management process that included the groups interested in the action: the municipal authorities (prefecture of the city of Diadema), the state authorities (Institute of Botany) and the local community. In the field of research and action, focus group techniques were used to identify the main environmental conflicts in the area; interviews were conducted with residents to understand their perception of environmental issues, and regular meetings were held to plan the actions to be taken. The results indicate that there was a process of training citizens with regard to the organization of collective action, which yielded significant results that improved the social and environmental quality of the area.>>>

en: The intensification of human activity in the productive sector and everyday work has produced a significant increase in greenhouse gas emission, leading to climate change or global warming. This man-made phenomenon has been studied from various perspectives, including microsocial analysis. This paper studies the main determinants of household energy consumption, estimating a proxy for the volume of associated carbon dioxide emissions, with data from the National Income and Expenditure Survey for the Federal District.>>>

en: The analysis of international remittances in recipient countries is a widely debated issue in the specialized literature. However, there is no consensus in the various analytical and methodological perspectives over the direction, scope or implications of these processes. This article examines empirical evidence based on microdata from the permanent survey on Paraguayan households. It begins by comparatively analyzing the sociodemographic patterns of receiving and non-receiving households in the south and north. It subsequently details the mechanisms of the movement and use of international remittances in the various migratory circuits. The results highlight the specificities of the macro migratory systems linked to the global north and south.>>>

en: In this study, we focus on the estimation of infant mortality and the analysis of the cause of death related to congenital syphilis in Mexico City in 1915. The sources of information used are the vital statistics of deaths for that year, which contain information by age, sex and cause of death. At the same time, in order to corroborate the presence of congenital syphilis centuries ago, we describe the results of the osteopathological analysis of a series of 199 skeletons of children of various ages, including fetuses, recovered during the archaeological excavations of the Convent of Santa Isabel in Mexico City, which reveal the presence of this disease in the population in the 19th century. These two sources of information contribute to the study of infant mortality and children at two moments (19th and early 20th century) and provide information on frequency by age and sex. In particular, we are interested in the case of congenital syphilis as a cause of death recorded by doctors, since it has allowed us to identify this disease as a common public health problem. The results reveal a high mortality from this cause during the first year of life and up to the age of five, with differences by sex and>>>

en: The central objective of this paper is to analyze the sociodemographic profile of crossborder workers or commuters from the cities of Tijuana-San Diego and Mexicali-Calexico by sex and location of workplace. Cross-border workers or commuters are individuals who live in a city on the northern border of Mexico but cross the border daily to work in the neighboring US city. The information used for this study is drawn from the Mexican Population and Housing Census 2010; however, the analysis of the commuters’ profile is supplemented by ethnographic information from various interviews with cross-border workers, mainly in the cities of Tijuana and Mexicali. We believe that this population provides a more complete individual, everyday image of the complex relationship that exists on the US-Mexico border, given the main feature of continuous interaction between both sides of the border. It will also provide deeper insight into a border reality based on the dependence created and recreated in both Mexican and US societies.>>>
