NAFTA Country Comparison Statistical Data Set
While researching statistical information for a white paper I’m currently working on, I realized two things. The first is that there is a tremendous amount of information out there but it is difficult to compile into a dataset that allows me to analyze trends and create comparisons between the three NAFTA partners. The second is that although I intuitively knew that generally there is not much difference between Mexico and the other two partners; the general public has a misperception that Mexico lags significantly behind Canada and the United States in terms of support and resources for its population. More importantly, national governmental institutions continue to adequately and effectively respond to the needs of the country.
Mexican institutions have been under a tremendous amount of pressure to deal with four major issues this year; the Drug War, the global recession, the April 27, 2009 Earthquake in Mexico City and the N1H1 (Swine Flu) outbreak. As a Mexican, I am proud of how our national institutions and my paisanos have dealt and coped with these significant national issues.
