Clarification Request: Discrepancy in the Representation of Skin Tones in Mexico edit

Hello members of the WikiProject Mexico, I am writing to seek your assistance in addressing a matter of accuracy and representation in a Wikipedia article related to ethnicity and skin tones in Mexico.Talk:White Mexicans - Wikipedia

There is an ongoing discussion on the article's talk page concerning a statistic claiming that 47% of Mexicans have light skin (this is the actual document that have this reference a Encuesta Nacional sobre Discriminación en México 2010. Upon closer examination, it appears that the source cited for this statistic does not explicitly state this percentage. A user claims that in the page 7 said this , but Instead, it mentions that 54% of women and 40% of men self-identify as having the three lightest skin tones on a scale of 9. (you can find this values in this source Enadis-2010-RG-Accss-002.pdf ( page 40 and 41). The claim about 47% seems to be derived from a simple average of these percentages, which may not accurately represent the data. In addition to not correctly specifying the number of people, this user indicates that 47% of Mexicans are light-skinned instead of indicating that "they choose the 3 lightest tones of a scale of 9 colors), and in the development of the article indicates that up to 47% of Mexicans are white, because according to him, having a European phenotype is synonymous with being white. No academic publication supports this.

I believe that it's essential to maintain accurate and well-sourced information on Wikipedia, and I have concerns about the accuracy of this particular claim. Unfortunately, I am currently blocked from reply his remarks and cannot directly address this issue. Therefore, I am reaching out to you, experts in this field, for assistance.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, and for your dedication to maintaining the quality and accuracy of information on Wikipedia. Kodosbs (talk) 23:58, 26 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

LGBT culture in Puerto Vallarta edit

I have nominated LGBT culture in Puerto Vallarta for Good article status. If promoted, this would be Wikipedia's first Good article about LGBT culture in a specific locale, as for as I know. I have addressed concerns from the first nomination and made other improvements. I invite project members to offer feedback, make improvements, or pick up the nomination, if interested. Thanks! ---Another Believer (Talk) 22:02, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
