Este trabalho verifica a influência da distribuição de renda e das transferências federais para as Unidades da Federação (UFs) sobre o fluxo de migrantes recebido por UF. O estudo inova ao adotar dados agregados para mensurar o efeito de políticas públicas sobre a imigração. Os resultados econométricos sugerem um efeito positivo das transferências federais para as UFs sobre a imigração, mostrando que o incremento de tais transferências estimula o fluxo imigratório para determinadas UFs. Há também evidências de que uma alta concentração de renda desestimula a imigração. A segunda inovação deste estudo consiste na separação geográfica dos fatores determinantes dos fluxos imigratórios. This article verifies the impact of both federal transfers to states and income inequality over imigration. The innovation here is the use of aggregate data to verify the impact of public policy over migration. The econometric results suggest a positive effect of federal transfers to states over imigration. That is, an increase in the cash transferences from Federal government to states increases migration to those states. Besides that, we found that high income inequality in a state decreases migration to that state. Moreover, the results vary according to the group division of Brazilian states, indicating a scale effect.
