Better pay has always been the big lure for Mexicans who travel north to work in the United States, but how much better is that pay? About six times’ worth, according to data gathered by both Mexico and the U.S.

According to the 2015 results of a monthly survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau for the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 50% of Mexican men and 25% of women earn more than 50,000 pesos (US $3,100) a month.

 In Mexico, the average monthly salary of a worker — with a bachelor’s degree — is 7,600 pesos, less than US $400.

Higher salaries are a big draw for Mexican migrants but other factors are a better quality of life, a better education and fewer security concerns.
