US-Mexico Documentation Tables:

  • Population Estimates by Five-year Age Groups, 1990-1994
  • Population Estimates by Five-year Age Groups and Dependency Age Groups, 1990
  • Population Percents by Five-year Age Groups and Dependency Age Groups, 1990
  • Marital Status, 1990
  • Mortality by Five-year Age Groups, 1990-1994

  • Population Estimates by Sex and Five-year Age Groups, 1990
  • Population Percents by Sex and Five-year Age Groups, 1990
  • Population Estimates by Other Age Groups, 1990

The tables provide source, year, and calculation information for each US-Mexico DDViewer variable. Columns one and two (variable and year, respectively) relate to both countries. The first column imparts the new name attached to each matched variable set – these are the variable names you'll find in DDViewer– and the second supplies the year (or group of years) pertaining to the data. The remainder of the table is broken into two parts: one for the US and the other for Mexico. For each country, the columns indicate whether the DDViewer variable has been aggregated from source variables, a hyperlink to source documentation, the source variable name, and any calculations performed to ensure comparability.
