Publicamos aquí en forma electrónica esta Guía de las Memorias de la Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público de México durante su primer siglo de existencia.  Para el historiador económico su importancia es evidente: estos documentos hacendarios que cubren el período 1822 hasta 1910 constituyen la fuente más importante de información cualitativa y cuantitativa sobre la administración pública, no sólo por el resumen económico anual presentado por los respectivos secretarios sino además por la gran cantidad de anexos estadísticos que acompañan cada informe.  Ver más


In this web site, hosted by the Library of El Colegio de México, we are publishing in electronic form a detailed guide to the ANNUAL REPORTS OF THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE OF MEXICO, published between 1822 and 1910. For the economic and fiscal historian these documents are of great importance as they provide the largest amount of information on income, expenditure and public debt of the Mexican government during the first century after independence. We have included summaries of each of the reports, information on their location in libraries in Mexico City, brief biographies of all Finance Ministers (more than eighty) as well as complementary bibliography on Mexican fiscal history, including contemporary documents and secondary literature. Most important, this site assembles and presents in Excell forms all the statistical tables in the Ministry of Finance reports and their appendices between 1822 and 1870.* We would appreciate any comments on the utility of the sources and on this web site from professors, students and any other users. Below we include a text in Spanish which provides a detailed description of the Project and of the usefulness of the sources collected. The web page and electronic Excel's archives can be found online at Biblioteca de El Colegio de México (http://memoriasdehacienda.colmex.mx/) and at Biblioteca Lerdo de la SHCP (http://codexvirtual.com/bmlt2/)

*This task has been laborious: we hope that in the future some institution may be interested in the tabulation of the remaining fiscal statistics from 1870 onwards, but this would require financial assistance to carry out.  See more
