This data collection was constructed to ascertain the living standards of the Mexican population during the Porfiriato (1876-1910) and the first four decades of the Post-Revolution period. These data supply information on the individual's age, sex, year of birth, height, place of birth, place of recruitment (into the military), occupation (for passport holders), and occupation prior to recruitment.
