How to Cite the MMP and its Data

THE MMP

You may introduce the MMP using a quote such as the following: "The Mexican Migration Project (MMP) is a collaborative research project based at the Princeton University and the University of Guadalajara".

Please, cite the MMP website: mmp.opr.princeton.edu.

Other references to the MMP or its survey methodology can be taken from our website at your discretion. For example, consider reporting that the survey questionnaire is available on this website. When citing our website, refer only to the address specified above and not to specific menus within it, as the website design may change over time. There is no need to use quotes when copying text from the MMP website.

THE MMP DATA BASE: MMP161

We ask you to cite the current MMP database as "MMP161." For your reference, the number 161 stands for the number of communities included in the database. It does not represent the number of communities included in a user's own work. Thus, in case you decide to discard data from one or more entire communities, we still ask you not to change this reference and cite your original data source as "MMP161."

IF YOU ARE USING A PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE DATA BASE...

MMP154 was released on October 2015. If you are using the previous version of the MMP Data Base, which contained 150 communities, we ask you to refer to it as "MMP150."

IF YOU PUBLISH...

Please let us know if you publish any research that uses MMP data by sending a message to mmp-lamp@princeton.edu
