Designed for state and national policymakers, academics and casual users alike, USMexPAT offers data-based predictions of policy impact to facilitate strategic decision-making at a regional and national level.
The tool utilizes a Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model, and operates in accordance with the neoclassical view of economics favored by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
USMexPAT currently offers comparative static estimates (i.e. percent changes) for user-defined inputs in four policy areas: energy reform, border wait times, education reform, and labor mobility.Open USMexPAT
The data visualization tool offers a snapshot of demographic, socioeconomic, economic and trade indicators for both the U.S. and Mexico, with particular emphasis on the border region’s states, counties and municipalities.
Indicators such as GDP, educational attainment, poverty rates, unemployment and inflation are collated from an extensive range of U.S. and Mexican government sources, for display in both chart and tabular form, to facilitate comparisons at a state and local level. Data is provided for single years and, where possible, over time.
Updated on a biannual basis, the data visualization tool is optimized for, and therefore best viewed in, the Google Chrome browser.Open Data Viz Tool
