Abstract : In this paper the authors have applied linear programming methods to the cargo system of Atempan, Sierra de Puebla, Mexico. The use of this method may help to uncover the criteria and their relative weights used in the selection of persons for the cargos of this religious hierarchy. Ultimately, it may be useful in prediction if the criteria are adequately quantified.
