Diagnóstico do processo migratório no Brasil 2: migração entre estados


  • André Braz Golgher



This analysis is the second one of four descriptive studies that discussed the migratory process in Brazil. The main objective of this series is to give data support for other complementary and analytically more sophisticated studies. The main objective of this specific discussion is to present the intrastate and interstate flows of migrants for all the Federal Units in Brazil. Some of the main results are presented below. Just two states in Brazil, SP and GO, had a difference between the number of immigrants and emigrants above 100000 howing a clear tendency of populaiton absortion. In the other extreme, three states of the Northeast Region, BA, PE and MA, had figures below -100000. Brazil had more than 5500 municipalities in 2000 and a significant population interchange between them. Mosat pf tje migants chaged their municipality of residence in a intrastate migration or between statres that were neighbors. Other flows were also very numerous, such as: between most of the states in the Northeast region and SP; the ones that had as destiny the southern part of the North Region or the north of the Center-West Region; the one that had as origin MA state and as destiny the North Region.
