The Apple Migration Assistant does say Select the Information to Transfer, however the Apple Migration Assistant will do a copy of the data from the old Apple Mac computer to the new Apple Mac computer, and no data is moved, only copied, as the word Transfer does mean to move from one to the other, this is not the case, and its a copy task.

User Account and Library.

If you have a Apple Mac computer that has been set-up with more than one computer account, and you do no want to copy the computer account information from another user, then simply do not select that user.
