The family has long been a cherished institution in Mexican society and a poll of young people aged 12-29 indicates that it will remain so for some time to come.
Asked how important family, school, work, relationships, friends, money, religion and politics were in their lives, 96% of the 1,000 people surveyed in all 32 states said family was very important.
Religion and politics placed dead last with 38% and 24%, respectively.
School was very important for 91%, work for 88%, relationships for 61%, friends for 48% and money for 47%.
Conducted by the newspaper El Universal, the poll also revealed that young people are proud of their country. Nine out of 10 described themselves as very proud to be Mexican.
But Mexican politicians are not held in high regard among the 52% who have little interest in politics: 43% of them believe politicians are dishonest.
