Between August 2009 and September 2014, 719,000 people left Mexico for another country. The United States of America (86.3 percent), Canada (2.2 percent) and Spain (2.1 percent) are the main destinations for those who decide to go abroad; While 9.2 percent went to a country in the rest of the world.
