Although the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi) does not reveal reasons why the Yucatecans left their native state, it is estimated that the reasons are educational and work-related.

It also indicated that up to 2015, 7,919 foreigners were in the State, and more than a third of them, that is to say 2,844, come from the United States, while the remaining 5,075, come from other countries.

In two years, there has been a variable dynamic with ups and downs in the migrant population, but it is increasingly diversified. According to Inegi, the age range of most nationals and foreigners residing in Yucatan is between 20 and 29 years of age, mainly.
