This paper studies absolute and conditional convergence (alfa and beta-convergence too,) in Mexico over the period 1970-1995. I use the neoclassical growth model and a cross-section data for empirics. I find evidence of conditional convergence (near at traditional 2% rate) for full period but different rates for other periods. I find also a faster convergence rate for "poor" states than the "rich" ones. Finally, our results point to significant impact of the human capital variables on economic growth.
