Various kinds of data are brought to bear upon the problem of selectivity of migration from the Mixtec town of Tilantongo in southern Mexico. It is shown that out-migration from the community is related to differences in wealth, education, lingualism, and cosmopolitanism. The wealthier, better educated, Spanish-speaking, more cosmopolitan peasants tend to leave Tilantongo more than their poor, illiterate, Indian-speaking counterparts. Within this pattern, there are different kinds of migration to different parts of the nation.
