Abstract: Migration is one of the most important strategies of survival mankind. It has allowed man to occupy new environments and find better living conditions than the original ones. A previous report identified in Piracicaba, State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, a large contingent of migrants originating at the Municipality of Novo Cruzeiro, State of Minas Gerais. The present study explores whether migrant families from Cruzeiro to Piracicaba have now reached similar or better living conditions as those of the inhabitants of the former location, justifying the their moving. Evidence has shown that migrant families from Novo Cruzeiro to Piracicaba have reached similar or better living conditions than those families who remained home (Novo Cruzeiro-MG), which justify moving from one state to another Socio-environmental indicators showed that living conditions improved among the Piracicaba inhabitants as to housing, family income and maternal school attendance.
