  • Abstract

    This dataset on land reform in Mexico, was originally coded from the Diario Oficial by the Ministry of Land Reform (Secretaria de la Reforma Agraria), the ministry responsible for administering Mexico's land reform. Susan Walsh Sanderson acquired the data from the Ministry in 1976 and completed a dissertation (Sanderson, 1980) and book (Sanderson, 1984) summarizing the main findings. The background to this dataset is described in chapter 1 of Sanderson (1984). While a detailed description and analysis of the information can be found in the 1984 book, a codebook has been created that highlights the main features of the dataset. To familiarize the user with the variables in the dataset, the document also explains how to replicate some of the tables and figures in the original work. A program to perform this replication is also provided.
