More than 40 percent of Mexico’s total population in the year 2002 (nearly 44 million people) was under the age of 19 and the general mortality rate was five per 1,000 inhabitants. The birth rate per 1,000 inhabitants has declined from 45 in 1960 to 17 in 2000 and Mexico’s life expectancy has increased progressively, jumping 25 years between 1950 and 2000.
