The objective of this paper is to analyze the spatial mobility of the population in Brazil in the second half of the twentieth century and the first decade of this century, with reference to the units of the federation and the regions. Firstly, we analyze the major trends in trade flows and net migration between the sixties of the last century and the first decade of the current. Second, the findings, analyzes the changes observed in the most recent period, from 1980, when the census questions allow the calculations of return migration and short-term. The important conclusion is that the new migratory pattern that advertises itself does not mean a complete transition, however, it coexist characteristics of old and new, and this is perhaps its most important structural mark because accompanies the actual characteristics of the uneven development of capitalism in Brazil.
