Mobility was estimated in eleven populations of the Puna region, and the Calchaquí and Lerma Valleys (Salta) from marital migration matrices, considering the distances between birthplaces of the spouses. From distances between places of birth and of residence, differential migration by sex was estimated. In general, men migrate to greater distances than women. To estimate patri or matrilocality, couples with at least one local individual were considered, both by area and locality. A matrilocal residence pattern is observed in the valleys. The distribution of distances of the three regions showed a strong positive skewness, characteristic of inbred rural populations. In the studied populations, analysis of the results shows that the isolation-by-distance model does not reflect their marital structure. Rev Arg Antrop Biol 21(2), 2019. doi:10.24215/18536387e005
