Fundamentos da migração
André Braz Golgher
Textos para Discussão Cedeplar-UFMG from Cedeplar, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais
This is an introductory text that presents the migration process in many different aspects. Firstly, different methods commonly used in quantitative studies of migration are introduced, including the use of data bases, direct and indirect techniques. Secondly, different patterns of migration in the last centuries in Brazil and in the World are presented with particular attention to the most recent one. After this, three fundamental questions about migration are discussed. The first one deals with the determinants of migration, the second one with the selectivity of the migration process and the last one with the consequences related to population’s mobility. Finally, two specific topics are presented: the relationship between urbanization and migration; and intraurban migration in Brazil.
