DescriptionReligion and Development in Mexico over a hundred years: A work in progress.


This presentation summarizes on an ongoing project to understand the roots of changes in health, poverty, literacy, and religious affiliation in Mexico over the past 130 years. The project involves overcoming the challenges of geo-referencing and linking subnational data from government, Catholic, and Protestant sources over more than a century. The techniques developed and tested during the project will facilitate similar centuries-long studies of religion and development elsewhere in Latin America and the world.
