Data with recent migration flows between 59 mexican metropolitan areas of the population with at least one year of graduate studies. The migraton took place from 2005 to 2010. The scope of the study was only internal migration, so the people who entered in Mexico from abroad is excluded. The network data format is .net for Pajek, the computational representation is an arc + edge array.


Steps to reproduce

The original source of this data is the sample of the extended questionnaire of the 2010 census form INEGI. After the integration of the 32 Person databases, the first step is to characterize the population by educational level. Next step is to get the orginin (State and Municipality of residence in 2005) and destination (current State and Municipality of Residence). After the location IDs are ready the identifiers of the 59 metropolitan areas must be created (based on the CONAPO-INEGI definition) The final step is a aggregation of the sums of population in a given educational level (graduate studies in this case) who changed residence form one metro area in 2005 to another in 2010. This database must be transformed in a minimum information origin-destination array (excluding all ceros) and generate a list of the nodes to integrate a .net file (for Pajek software).
