No state achieved the ideal score, meaning all entities still have challenges to address.

The results of the Rule of Law Index in Mexico (IEDMX) 2023-2024 show stagnation in the country’s progress toward a robust Rule of Law, with poor changes in the overall scores of most of the 32 federal entities since the last edition.

The entities with the highest scores in the IEDMX 2023-2024 are Querétaro, with 0.49; Guanajuato, 0.47; and Aguascalientes, with 0.47.

This is the third time Querétaro is in the first place, while it is the second time Guanajuato and Aguascalientes hold the same positions.

The states with the lowest scores are Estado de México, with 0.35; Morelos, with 0.35; and Quintana Roo, with 0.36.

After six editions, the data showed the following trends: most states show a contraction in citizen participation, which is crucial for effective public policy formulation. Additionally, security remains one of the major challenges with high rates of homicides and crime incidence and prevalence, although there is a significant improvement in the perception of security among people.

There is a strengthening in the guarantee of labor rights, with improvements in 19 states, and persistent challenges in the criminal justice system, particularly due to the weakening in the guarantee of due process.

No state achieved the ideal score, meaning all entities still have challenges to address.

This is the sixth edition conducted in Mexico, allowing the recording of advances and persistent challenges regarding the state of entities in the federation.
