The present paper, exploratory and informative basically, had as main purpose, to put together data about International Migration in Brazil and the contribution of this migration to the growth of the brazilian population. For this matter an index that would proporcionate a first approximation for the estimatives of return emmigration, was build, once data on that matter is lacking. Despite the fact of the introduction having elements beyond 1872, this date was taken as inicial point, as it is of the first Brazilian National Census. It also has been analysed based on Census data, the spacial distribution by State, of the foreign population.
