    Details

    After the review made to the section I noticed that the reason why it is not up to date because the 'latest population information is from 2015'. The datasets specified are related to the 'National Population Census' which in most countries is done every 5 or 10 years because of its costs. Nonetheless, Mexico DOES officially release current population statistics as 'Demographic indicators' (https://datos.gob.mx/busca/dataset/proyecciones-de-la-poblacion-de-mexico/resource/08070f55-0a97-48fb-bfe9-e8a6c33a7f28). This dataset is released by the National Population Commission, the entity officially in charge of making demographic statistics in Mexico.
