Abstract: This analysis is the first 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. Here migrants and non-migrants are compared in aspects such as: sex, age, race, schooling, income, economic sector, household relations and urbanization degree. These two groups showed some differences and a few of them are cited below. The migrants presented a greater proportion of women than non-migrants. Young people showed greater mobility than elderly ones. When different race groups were compared, it was not observed any clear tendency. Persons with more formal schooling and higher income are overrepresented in the migrants group. The migrant household differs from the non-migrants one. The latter is mainly composed of a nuclear family, while the former show greater proportions of extensive households.
