dc.description.abstract To explain trends in inequality in Mexico, three theoretical approaches to income inequality are outlined: Kuznets' inverted "U", Mexican crisis theory, and the informal-formal duality. Empirical data are used to construct maps of the distribution of income in the Mexico City Metropolitan Zone. Due in part to the very large size of many districts in the city, there is enormous heterogeneity in each district. High levels of inequality in every district mirror the very high variance and inequality of employment income at the national scale. en
