Relocation in Brazil


Brazil has enormous potential, but some way to go before it is completely fulfilled. This is perhaps reflected in the net migration (the number of immigrants minus the number of emigrants), which is currently slightly negative at -38,000 per year. To compare this figure with other countries, the net migration rate is used. Brazil has a net migration rate of -0.15 migrants per 1,000 population, putting the country in 117th out of the 222 territories in the world .

In terms of internal migration, an annual average of 1.15% of the population move to Brazil’s urban and suburban areas, adding to the 84.6% of the population who currently live in a city or town. (source: CIA World Factbook).
