Fewer migrants are entering Mexico, but the number leaving has dropped even faster.

Less than 1 percent of Mexico's population has left the country in the last year, according to the government. The Mexican government's statistical unit says the country's net outflow of migrants has fallen to "almost nothing." 

The National Statistics Institute says Mexico lost about 0.09 percent of its population to migration as of March 2010 and March 2011.

About 0.38 percent of the country's 112.7 million people migrated abroad, while about 0.29 percent immigrated to Mexico.

The Institute said Monday the net loss was down from the outflow of 0.53 percent when the comparison was first made at the height of the migration boom in 2006.

The comparisons are based on preliminary figures from the quarterly National Employment and Occupation survey.
