This paper analyzes the current migration in rural population in the south of Veracruz state (Mexico). We identify three different spaces of migration, traditional markets, the northern border and the United States. Applying a multinomial logistic model and taking into account individual, family, and local characteristics of the migrants, we find different determinants in each space. These determinants are related to the objectives, needs and means of the migrants and their families. Otherwise, each space involves different consequences to the family in terms of the relationships between migrants and the rest of their relatives.
