dc.description.abstractThe bulk of quantitative research on hometown associations (HTAs) focuses on cross country comparisons. However, research has not sufficiently addressed the context of exit and variation across sending states in Mexico. Using the Latino National Survey (LNS), logistic regression, and multi-level modeling of Mexican census and survey data, this paper proceeds to fill this gap in the literature. Particularly, this thesis considers the influence of civic and political participation after migration, cross border activity, social, and household resources in the United States. Additionally, the uniqueness of the LNS will allow for testing political participation in Mexico, prior to migration, and perceptions of government on HTA participation. My initial findings confirm prior research that past experiences in Mexico matter. Additionally, they illuminate some important reasons that lead to variation of Mexican civic participation in the United States. iiien_US
