Analysis Of Brazil's Migration Trends

Extracts from this document...


Analyse Of Brazils Migration Trends The country that I will be analysing for migration trends is Brazil. Brazil is in South America as you can see from the map above. There is a lot of different migration in Brazil. Many different migration schemes are occurring all over the world, things such as. > War > Slave Trade > Jobs > Don't like area > Actors, musicians etc Brazil is a bit different though because it has an overcrowding problem, and the government has it's way of moving people. Here are the different migrations occurring in Brazil today. Urbanisation Urbanisation is when people move from a rural area to an urban area, the economic reasons for this is because there is not many jobs in the rural area. The transportation in Brazil isn't the best so therefore it's harder for them to get into the town. If the people of Brazil move into the urban areas for work the cost of living will be higher but there will be no cost for transportation. The environment in the rural area is much better than in the urban areas as there is more traffic in the urban areas which causes pollution. ...read more.


The south has the main cities such as Brasilia, Sao Paulo and Rio De Janeiro. In the south there is less overcrowding as there is more room to spread out as in the north people have to live where there are no trees and vegetation, this can cause people to want more freedom which persuades them to move to southern Brazil. In the south there are more jobs, and the adults children have a chance to go to school and get a better future. Adults may of brought up there children in the North to keep them away from the crime in the southern Brazil, so therefore when they are old enough they will move down to the south to get an education. The hospital facilities will be much better in the south as there is more civilization. Into Rainforest There are few reasons why people move into the rain forest. It could be that there family lives there and they want to be closer to their family. Another reason is that they may want to have a completely different job. The rainforest has jobs such as mining as they have metal ore. ...read more.


Jobs are available but not many. A big job that is in the rainforest is logging, this job can require a lot of people because there are so many trees. Conclusion The reasons why they move can be used using a push pull model. Here is an example: - This shows that there are a lot of reasons to go and shows the reasons why to move, push factors show why they should move and the pull factors show why they should move there. As you can see from the above there is a lot of migration occurring. This is causing areas where theirs to many people and over crowding as people want different things in their life. The population is increasing (0.91% per year) so something is going to have to be done in Brazil as the over crowding is going to get even worse as time goes on. Some people might think about using the amazon rainforest as a chance to be the solution to the over crowding problem but a lot of people would have different ideas about this. Brazil There was a big migration scheme that used to occur earlier in out time, which was slave trade. ...read more.
