On the other hand the magnitude of the loss for gdp in Mexico was much higher than in the us, reaching 2.7 times that of the latter. Recovery, however, has been more vigorous in Mexico, although only reaching a rate of 1.5 times that of its northern neighbor. The increased sensibility of the manufacturing industry to different shocks has made its cumulative losses greater in all cases, especially in Mexico, with a drop of 21.8% from the peak. The fall in us manufacturing was also elevated (-17.8%), above the State of Mexico, which was the least affected out of the three, although it too saw a significant cumulative drop of 12.3%. Recovery has also occurred on a large scale in order to recover the losses linked to the previous recession, except in the us, as shown in Figure 1.
