Abstract (Swedish)
This paper investigates the role of ethnicity in regional economic divergence across the Mexican states based on each state’s overall access to government services such as education, public infrastructure and healthcare based on the latest available data. The paper uses Mexico as a case study using the country’s three main ethnicities (Indigenous, Mestizo and European) as dependent variables for regressions with modern socioeconomic indicators. The analysis shows statistically significant correlations in support of states with higher Indigenous population as being less advantaged in terms of coverage of government services. The findings are later discussed under a theoretical framework based on the works of institutional economists.
