The Mexican Year Book is issued to meet the demand for unbiased and systematized information concerning Mexico. The book has furthermore been written expressly for the American public, and has no connection, official or unofficial, with the Mexican government. This is in contradistinction to former Mexican Year Books, which were compiled primarily for English use and claimed some measure of official patronage. These ceased publication in 1914.

Of recent Fears, moreover, the difficulty of obtaining reliable data has been greatly increased by the confusion into which the recent revolutionary disturbances have thrown so many of the sources upon which one is dependent for official information and statisties. In thus dilemma, the files of the Doheny Foundation, now at Occidertal College, have proved to be of the greatest benefit. .
