A national survey taken in the first half of 2016 by the Strategic Communication Cabinet (GCE) found that 81.1 percent of Mexicans believe Mexico is not moving forward. Of those, 55.2 percent believe the country is stagnant while 25.9 percent the country is regressing. Only 16.7 percent of those surveyed believe the country is moving forward.

These results are part of a section of the survey that calculates social mood, which, in addition to measuring national perception of growth, measures satisfaction regarding finance, opportunities, government actions, safety and quality of life.

President of the GCE Liébano Sáenz y General Director of the GCE Federico Berrueto, who conducted the survey, found that the residents of Chiapas, Tabasco, Veracruz, Oaxaca and Tlaxcala had the highest levels of dissatisfaction regarding national growth.

Residents of Coahuila, San Luis Potosí, Durango, Chihuahua and Nayarit had the best perceptions of the country.

According to the individuals surveyed, the most pressing problem in Mexico is currently “insecurity/delinquency” (31 percent), followed by “impunity/corruption,” and “government actions.”

With regards to financial satisfaction, most answered that they were not happy with their situation and were unsatisfied with the availability of opportunities to improve their current situation.
