    Abstract

    This work looks for empirical evidence about the determinants of inter-regional migration in Brazil. In this investigation, it considers both the importance of human capital theory, by focusing income expectation, and the importance of location or neighbors of states, by controlling for neighbors’ attractive characteristics. The results point out several important aspects of Brazilian migration. First, spatial controls are fundamental to determinate the role of income expectation in net rate of inter-regional migration, consequently, previous works sub estimate the role of this variable in Brazil internal migration. Second, social and natural local attractive characteristics, besides income expectation, are also important to explain the net rate of inter-regional migration in Brazil.
