Migration and Urbanization in China

Synopsis

Patterns of migration in China since the establishment of the People's Republic have differed considerably from those in other countries. Three features are of particular note: the extent of government intervention in the process, the uncertainty concerning magnitude (owing to ambiguous definitions), and the prominent role played by temporary movement.
Based on a careful analysis of the large-scale national survey of migration conducted in late 1986 by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences with partial support from the U.N. Fund for Population Activities, this book provides detailed analyses of the volume and direction of movement, the characteristics and motivations of those who move, and the consequences of their moving. There is also a thorough discussion of the complex issues surrounding the definition of permanent and temporary migration and their pattern and significance.
