The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the spatial changes in labour market inequality for the Mexican regions, using the data from national occupation and employment survey (ENOE, for its acronym in Spanish) from 2005 to 2015. We report evidence of spatial variation in gender employment shares provided by the different productive structures of the regions. We show that inequalities and poverty are shaping contemporary Mexico. Since inequalities conform a system of accumulative disadvantages, the same occurs with labour. Birth place, education as well as access to health services shape the future labour. Using a spatial panel data, we show that women are in more disadvantages than men inside the different regions, even in regions with more development.
